The Kingston Frontenac Public Library provides a number of different kinds of materials, from books to DVDs, for your use and enjoyment. Each of these materials has its own rule on how many you are allowed to borrow at one time, the period of time for which the items can be borrowed, and the fees involved should any items get damanged or do missing.
KFPL is no longer charging overdue fines! More information about our fine-free initiative is available here.
You may borrow up to a maximum of 75 items.
