New online programs for children at KFPL this fall

The Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) has announced their fall children’s programming. This programming will be happening almost exclusively online and some of the live online events require registration.

Stories in the Square is continuing on Thursday mornings during the month of September. This is an in-person event taking place outdoors, so bring a blanket to sit on. Stories, songs and plenty of fun will be had in the Springer Market Square amphitheatre from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

Children can enjoy some of their favourite library programs online, including Family Storytime and Rhythm and Rhyme, along with new programs this fall. Preteens can borrow a ukulele and learn a new skill in Uke Can Do It!, or pick up an art supplies kit and exercise their creativity in Art of Illustration.

These new events require registration, and provide the necessary equipment, which is to be picked up before the event. The art kit for Art of Illustration will be available at the Central Branch, and the ukuleles are offered from the Isabel Turner Branch.

There will also be special events such as Guest Storytimes with Kingston WritersFest authors Matthew Forsythe and Celia Krampien, and the Ask an Author series with L.E. Carmichael this September.

“We have many different programs being offered this fall, from Baby and Me for our youngest patrons to more specialized classes for older children,” said Kristen Lemay, Programming and Outreach Librarian. “Building on the success of our online summer programs, we are piloting new programs to engage children and families while respecting physical distancing measures.”
