Celebrate with Us!

100 years storytime

On Saturday, November 10, join us in the celebration of the 100th anniversary of children’s story hour at the Kingston Frontenac Public Library. Storytime was introduced in 1918 by librarian Aimee Kennedy and has continued ever since.

Step back into history at Family Storytime at the Isabel Turner and Calvin Park branch. Partake in parlour games and enjoy classic nursery rhymes and tales.

There is also an online exhibit on Digital Kingston that features: historic newspaper clippings, junior books from 1918, a brief timeline of children’s services at the library, a biography of librarian Aimee Kennedy and various images from the early 20th century.
