NOTICE:

Story-time  will not be running on July 26th as we do not have a Storyteller/Craft Leader for that day.

Parents and caregivers are still welcome to bring their little ones to the Library for colouring, Lego, reading, and use of the Early Learning computers. We will also be selecting a few good Story-time books for anyone who wants to read out loud to their children.


You’ve weathered the weather, fought off the bugs, and been rewarded with a full harvest! But wait, maybe this harvest is a little too full… What’s the best way to store some of these great fruits and veggies to enjoy later in the season?

Come to our next Tuesday Talk to find out!

Our August 1st Tuesday Talk will be given by Amy Mackie, who makes and sells small batch preserves for her local farm, Just Winging It Farm. Her Talk will be all about ways to preserve your harvest.


Tuesday Talks are a great place to learn new things from local experts! During our Talk on Natural Pest Control a great resource was brought up, The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) lists input products such as fertilizers, pest controls, and livestock care products that are compliant with organic standards.

Can Canada be captured in 150 books? The Kingston Frontenac Public Library is working with Kingston WritersFest to find out!

You can help create the list by nominating a book, written by a Canadian author, that you love. You can nominate a book, and learn more about the contest, here.
