A new round of Kingston Frontenac Public Library’s Grownup Storytime Online will run through the month of May, still in a socially distanced form until in-person programs resume.
“Listening to audiobooks has long been popular among adults, but there’s something special about listening to someone read to you, live and in person,” said Anne Hall, Librarian, Programming & Outreach, KFPL. “And experiencing it in a group lets you enjoy not just the story but the company you’re in. Adults of all ages are invited to listen to stories, essays, excerpts or articles read by KFPL Programming Assistant Margi McKay. Relax at home over your lunch — or perhaps your knitting – and recapture the joys of storytime that you knew as a child. You’re always welcome to stay to talk about what you’ve heard.”
Grownup Storytime will take place from noon until 1 p.m. each Monday from May 3 through 31, 2021. (Except Monday May 24, the Victoria Day holiday.)
Register online at calendar.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888. Registrants will be emailed the link immediately upon registration. (Please check your Junk and Spam folders right away if you don’t see the confirmation email and link in your Inbox.) Participants will need to download the latest version of Zoom in advance to the device they’ll be using during the presentation.
