Later this month, Talking Café, a collaborative initiative by Compassionate Communities Kingston and Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) will help adults and seniors combat social isolation and enhance mental health through friendship building.
According to a release from KFPL, at the café, attendees will discover the warmth of community connection and enjoy light-hearted, casual conversations guided by a facilitator.
“Compassionate Communities and KFPL recognize the importance of creating and maintaining friendships in adult life, a truth confirmed by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Talking Café is a great opportunity to connect with people you may not otherwise meet. This will be a fun, casual opportunity to expand your social circle and build new connections!”
The library invites everyone to experience the benefits of “improved mental well-being and strengthened community ties.” Save the date of Monday, Jan. 22, 2024, and join in the talk from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Calvin Park Branch. Registration is required and can be completed at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/9838971
