KFPL wants your input to expand Indigenous programming and services. The library would like to work alongside community members to promote and preserve the diverse Indigenous cultures that contribute to Kingston-Frontenac’s strength. Complete this ten question survey to help us shape our planning process in the coming year. http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07effxyey4jhwbs5hx/start
Help us become a safer and more welcoming place for everyone. By taking a few moments to complete our communitiy survey, you will provide us with advice to develop better tools and strategies to address some of the challenges we face. Your input will help us understand the values and priorities our community wants to see reflected in our Patron Code of Conduct. This survey is the third step in a community engagement process, following interviews with community organizations and a public meeting. A summary report of the information collected will be shared on our website later this summer.
The KFPL Mobile Library is now at the Memorial Centre Arena at 303 York Street. Sleek and modern, the Mobile Library unit is filled with a selection of books and is easy to use. The Mobile Library is available during open hours for the Memorial Centre Arena, between 6 a.m. and midnight. If you would like help to get started with the Mobile Library, KFPL staff will be at the Memorial Centre Wednesday mornings from 10 to 12 and Saturday afternoons from 2 to 4 with our Pop-Up Library service and will be pleased to assist you.
We have an opportunity to build a library branch in the new community centre planned for the city’s east end. If approved, this branch would replace the current Pittsburgh Branch located at 80 Gore Road. We are seeking community feedback on the proposed project. To learn more, join library staff at an Open House at the Pittsburgh Branch on November 15 between 2 and 4 p.m. and 5:30 and 7 p.m. An information sheet providing background on the project is available at all library branches and can be downloaded here. Feedback can be submitted online, and paper surveys are avaiable at every branch.
KFPL, in partnership with the County of Frontenac, Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority and Ontario Parks, is making it easier for you to get out and get active this summer. Customized backpacks, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, include a day pass to the park and field guides to help you get the most out of your visit.
