Grownup Storytime has returned, in a socially distanced format, for adults looking to hear a great story.

Relax at home and listen live each week to a couple of short readings from a Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) staff member on a given theme – excerpts from novels and nonfiction works, short stories, essays, and articles.

This round of Grownup Storytime will take place each Monday from February 1 through March 29, (EXCEPT on February 15, due to the Family Day holiday), KFPL said in a release dated Monday, Jan. 18, 2021. Sit down with your lunch or a beverage, or your knitting, or just take a break from your busy day.  Why should kids have all the fun?

This year there are two ways to attend Grownup Storytime:

The Zoom program returns, Mondays from noon until 1 p.m., with participants receiving a Zoom link immediately upon registration through the KFPL website. KFPL says the same Zoom link will be used each week, so once you’ve registered for any one Zoom session you’ll be registered automatically for all subsequent Zoom sessions through March 29.  You must have a KFPL membership (library card) in order to register for this version.

Those without online access may now attend on Mondays from 10 to 11 a.m. through the Seniors Centre Phone From Home program — just phone (613) 548-7810 ext 238 to register. You need not have a KFPL membership to register for this version.

Each week participants in the online and phone sessions will all hear the same readings, KFPL said in the release.  At the end of every hour-long session each participant is welcome to stay for a brief discussion of what they’ve heard. 

Both versions of Grownup Storytime will run on Mondays, from February 1 through March 29, except on February 15 (Family Day).  The online version will run on Zoom from 12 to 1 p.m.  Register for that version either online at or by phone at (613) 549-8888.  The phone version will run from 10 to 11 a.m. through the Seniors Centre Phone From Home service; register for that version by calling (613) 548-7810 ext 238.
