New Rural Branch Hours: Effective Monday, June 5, all rural branches, except Sharbot Lake , Sydenham and Storrington, will have new opening hours. We are not cutting hours; rather we are moving about some hours to make visiting your local libraries more convenient.

In North Frontenac, the Cloyne branch will be open longer on Wednesday nights, the Plevna branch will open Friday mornings when the Township office and the dump are open, and the Ompah branch will open Tuesday mornings.

In Central Frontenac, the Mountain Grove branch will open on Wednesday nights and the Arden branch on Thursday nights, giving area residents two evenings of library service. In addition, the Arden branch will be open longer on Saturdays. The Parham branch will now be open Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon.


In South Frontenac, the Hartington branch will open on Mondays and Wednesdays. These hours, along with those at the Sydenham branch, offer library service in the area six days a week, including four evenings.

Many thanks to all who took the time to respond to our questionnaires about hours. Your feedback was invaluable.

Please check our ads in the May 18 and June 1 issues of The Frontenac News for full details, or head to our website www.kfpl.ca.

Have a Seat at our Sydenham Branch: We are thrilled to announce that we have three new beautiful and comfortable armchairs at the Sydenham branch, which replace the old ones which had seen better days! We are indebted to the KFPL Friends of the Library for providing the funds for these wonderful chairs.

The Friends of the Library (FOL) is an active volunteer charitable organization which fosters understanding and appreciation of all seventeen KFPL branches by raising funds to enhance services and provide materials and equipment not provided by public funding. The group provides a way for people of all ages to contribute to the Kingston Frontenac Public Library. A twelve-month membership or renewal may be taken out at any time of the year by visiting any KFPL branch. Friends receive a 15% discount at the Novel Idea Bookstore in Kingston .

The Friends’ AGM is at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6 in the Delahaye Room, KFPL Central Branch, 130 Johnson Street in Kingston . FOL memberships can be purchased at the AGM. More Friends information can be found at www.kfpl.ca/about/friends.htm
