Enjoy stories in the great outdoors this summer with the return of Stories at the Point. The Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) and Rural Frontenac Community Services EarlyON are bringing back their bi-weekly storytime, with a kickoff event on Friday, Jun. 9, 2023.

Wilderness Betty starts the fun with a nature-infused folk concert kick-off at Sydenham Point (4410 Point Road, Sydenham) at 10:30 a.m. on June 9, and from June to September families can come together for interactive events that include stories, songs, movement, and more every other Friday morning until September 1, KFPL said in a media release.

Those interested in joining the fun are asked to register at keyon.ca to guarantee a spot, and “don’t forget to bring blankets and sunscreen to make the most of the weather,” KFPL said.

On July 21, families can join a special StoryWalk that combines reading with the great outdoors. According to the release, participants can read the bilingual picture book Treasure by Mireille Messier while exploring the scenic trail. The book pages will be displayed along the way, and there will be related activities to participate in and learn something new, KFPL noted.

“Stories at the Point is a wonderful opportunity for families to come together, connect, and share a love of stories and reading,” said Brianne Peters, Librarian, Children’s Services. “It’s a great way to spend a beautiful day outside!”

The library invites everyone to take advantage of this opportunity for fun and engaging family time. Visit the Programs and Events section of KFPL’s website at www.kfpl.ca for more information.
