Grownup Storytime Returns to the Sydenham Library

12:30 PM — 01:30 PM

Grownup Storytime: "Why should kids have all the fun?" After a successful launch in September and October, Grownup Storytime returns to the Sydenham branch of Kingston Frontenac Public Library for another six weeks.  This time the sessions will be held by the fireplace from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Many adults enjoy audiobooks, but there's something special about listening to someone read to you in person.  It lets you enjoy not just a story but the company you're in.  And hearing stories read aloud can even be good for you!  Meghan Cox Gurdon (children's book critic for the Wall Street Journal) writes of the physiological benefits of hearing a story read aloud in her new book The Enchanted Hour:  the Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction:  "Stress hormones are decreased and bonding hormones increase." Adults of all ages are invited to drop by the Sydenham branch each Monday to listen to stories, essays, excerpts or articles read by Programming Assistant Margi McKay.  Feel free to bring your lunch — or perhaps your knitting.  If the group feels like staying to talk about what they've heard, there'll be time for that as well.  The first session of this new round will feature selections related to Remembrance Day. Grownup Storytime will run from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Mondays at the Sydenham branch, from November 11 through December 16.  Each weekly session of this drop-in program is open to adults of all ages, and no registration is required.   Come to as many sessions as you like!   For more information, visit www.kfpl.ca .

National Novel Writing Month

02:00 PM — 04:00 PM

Since 2007, November has been designated National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short.  Aspiring writers worldwide are encouraged to track their progress online as they try to produce 50,000 words in a new manuscript between the first and last of the month.  Focusing on quantity, rather than quality, the goal is to get writing, to write with a buddy or in a group, to combat writer's block, and to produce a substantial first draft that can later be edited and rewritten to form a finished novel or the first part of a novel.  By registering on the NaNoWriMo website writers can track their progress and connect with and encourage other writers, particularly in their own community.  Pep talks from published writers also help, especially when they come from authors whose published works originated in NaNoWriMo, like Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus), Rainbow Rowell (Fangirl), and Sara Gruen (Water for Elephants).  Kingston Frontenac Public Library is again teaming up with Kingston NaNoWriMo to provide space for local writers participating in National Novel Writing Month.  In addition to four Write Ins during November, there will be two prep sessions in October.  At these two-hour sessions, adult and teen writers can meet with fellow writers to get some work done in a fun, supportive space with free WiFi and electrical outlets (and possibly a few snacks).  These are drop-in sessions and no registration is required.  This year's sessions at KFPL will be held:   Monday, October 7, at Central branch at 2 p.m. Monday, October 28, at Calvin Park at 7 p.m. Monday, November 4, at Central at 7 p.m. Monday, November 11, at Isabel Turner at 7 p.m.     Monday, November 18, at Calvin Park at 2 p.m. Monday, November 25, at Central at 2 p.m.   Questions?

November is Make a Will Month

07:00 PM — 08:30 PM

Have you been putting off writing your will?  Are you considering drawing up a Power of Attorney — for yourself or for a parent?  Does the thought of estate planning make you anxious?  Then plan to attend one of our free KFPL Live talks offered with the help of the Ontario Bar Association. Local estate lawyers will explain why advance planning is so advisable and what common pitfalls to avoid when preparing your will.  Power of attorney issues and the roles and responsibilities of executors and attorneys for property and personal care will be discussed.  You will be able to ask questions, but no legal advice will be provided. We will be offering this talk three times:
  • at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 18, at the  Isabel Turner branch
  • at 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 23, at the Sydenham branch
  • at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 28 at the Calvin Park branch
As all three presentations will be the same, please plan to attend just one.  Each is free to adults, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance online at calendar.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888.

Telling Your Story Showcase

02:00 PM — 03:30 PM

Kingston Frontenac Public Library is delighted to announce the latest Telling Your Story Showcase: Writings from the Seniors' Writing Workshop.  Readings will be given by participants from the five-week memoir-writing workshop led by award-winning author Jean Rae Baxter this October in Sharbot Lake.  Having honed their stories during that process, these writers will now be sharing excerpts from the memoirs and family histories they created during the workshops. "It's impressive what a wide range of stories these seniors have to share," says Programming and Outreach Librarian Anne Hall.  "Each one is a powerful episode from a life well lived.  I think they'll be of interest to everyone, not just to friends and family of the participants." This event will take place in St Andrew’s Anglican Church hall, at 1028 Elizabeth Street in Sharbot Lake, on Tuesday, November 19, at 2 p.m.  Admission is free to all adults on a first-come, first-served basis — no registration is required.

United Empire Loyalist Meeting Saturday, Nov. 23

01:00 PM — 03:00 PM

Kingston & District UELAC meet Saturday, November 23rd at 1:00 pm at St. Paul's Anglican Church Hall, 137 Queen Street (at Montreal). For our AGM we are having a special guest speaker, historian and author Nathan Tidridge, who in 2018 was appointed Honorary Fellow of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada. He is going to talk about "Exploring Kinship Through Her Majesty's Chapels Royal." In 1711 Queen Anne of England commissioned the construction of Fort Hunter in northern New York Province, which included a chapel for the use of her Indigenous allies. After the American Revolution, treasured items from the chapel were brought to Canada in 1783 by native Loyalists, and shared between the Chapel of the Mohawks at Six Nations and All Saints Parish in Tyendinaga Territory. This promises to be an interesting story unfamiliar to many of us.  We invite anyone interested in early Canadian history to attend – visitors are always welcome. More details at www.uelac.org/Kingston-Branch or call (613) 549-2280.

Local estate lawyers will explain why advance planning is so advisable and what common pitfalls to avoid when preparing your will.  Power of attorney issues and the roles and responsibilities of executors and attorneys for property and personal care will be discussed.  You will be able to ask questions, but no legal advice will be provided. We will be offering this talk three times:
  • at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 18, at the  Isabel Turner branch

Grownup Storytime Returns to the Sydenham Library

12:30 PM — 01:30 PM

Grownup Storytime: "Why should kids have all the fun?" After a successful launch in September and October, Grownup Storytime returns to the Sydenham branch of Kingston Frontenac Public Library for another six weeks.  This time the sessions will be held by the fireplace from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Many adults enjoy audiobooks, but there's something special about listening to someone read to you in person.  It lets you enjoy not just a story but the company you're in.  And hearing stories read aloud can even be good for you!  Meghan Cox Gurdon (children's book critic for the Wall Street Journal) writes of the physiological benefits of hearing a story read aloud in her new book The Enchanted Hour:  the Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction:  "Stress hormones are decreased and bonding hormones increase." Adults of all ages are invited to drop by the Sydenham branch each Monday to listen to stories, essays, excerpts or articles read by Programming Assistant Margi McKay.  Feel free to bring your lunch — or perhaps your knitting.  If the group feels like staying to talk about what they've heard, there'll be time for that as well.  The first session of this new round will feature selections related to Remembrance Day. Grownup Storytime will run from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Mondays at the Sydenham branch, from November 11 through December 16.  Each weekly session of this drop-in program is open to adults of all ages, and no registration is required.   Come to as many sessions as you like!   For more information, visit www.kfpl.ca .

National Novel Writing Month

02:00 PM — 04:01 PM

Since 2007, November has been designated National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short.  Aspiring writers worldwide are encouraged to track their progress online as they try to produce 50,000 words in a new manuscript between the first and last of the month.  Focusing on quantity, rather than quality, the goal is to get writing, to write with a buddy or in a group, to combat writer's block, and to produce a substantial first draft that can later be edited and rewritten to form a finished novel or the first part of a novel.  By registering on the NaNoWriMo website writers can track their progress and connect with and encourage other writers, particularly in their own community.  Pep talks from published writers also help, especially when they come from authors whose published works originated in NaNoWriMo, like Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus), Rainbow Rowell (Fangirl), and Sara Gruen (Water for Elephants).  Kingston Frontenac Public Library is again teaming up with Kingston NaNoWriMo to provide space for local writers participating in National Novel Writing Month.  In addition to four Write Ins during November, there will be two prep sessions in October.  At these two-hour sessions, adult and teen writers can meet with fellow writers to get some work done in a fun, supportive space with free WiFi and electrical outlets (and possibly a few snacks).  These are drop-in sessions and no registration is required.  This year's sessions at KFPL will be held:   Monday, October 7, at Central branch at 2 p.m. Monday, October 28, at Calvin Park at 7 p.m. Monday, November 4, at Central at 7 p.m. Monday, November 11, at Isabel Turner at 7 p.m.     Monday, November 18, at Calvin Park at 2 p.m. Monday, November 25, at Central at 2 p.m.   Questions?

07:30 PM — 09:30 PM

DIRECTED BY PENNY NASH: A ridiculous but surprisingly faithful rendition of the Dickens classic. Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by the ghosts of Jacob Marley, Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and the Spirit of Christmas Yet to Come. Faced with his own mortality and the evil results of his misanthropic, miserly ways, Scrooge is redeemed, reconciled with his nephew and his neighbours, and becomes a second father to his assistant's son, Tiny Tim. Ludlam finds the humor as well as the pathos in this Victorian melodrama.   Start time: EVENING Performances 7:30 p.m.   Final Saturday Performance: 2:00 p.m.                             Thursday, Friday, Saturday                                 DOMINO THEATRE        52 CHURCH STREET        KINGSTON, ONT.        K7M 1H3   Tickets available at:  a) The Grand Theatre box office 613-530-2050 b) Online at: www.kingstongrand.ca c) The Domino Theatre door on the night of the performance if tickets available (cash, credit and debit now accepted)   Seniors and members $16 Thursdays only at the Domino Theatre door.   Adults: $20    Students: $10    Children: $10

Adults of all ages are invited to drop by the Sydenham branch each Monday to listen to stories, essays, excerpts or articles read by Programming Assistant Margi McKay.  Feel free to bring your lunch — or perhaps your knitting.  If the group feels like staying to talk about what they've heard, there'll be time for that as well.  The first session of this new round will feature selections related to Remembrance Day. Grownup Storytime will run from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Mondays at the Sydenham branch, from November 11 through December 16.  Each weekly session of this drop-in program is open to adults of all ages, and no registration is required.   Come to as many sessions as you like!   For more information, visit www.kfpl.ca .

Domino Theatre presents: A Christmas Carol adapted by Charles Ludlum

07:30 PM — 09:30 PM

DIRECTED BY PENNY NASH: A ridiculous but surprisingly faithful rendition of the Dickens classic. Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by the ghosts of Jacob Marley, Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and the Spirit of Christmas Yet to Come. Faced with his own mortality and the evil results of his misanthropic, miserly ways, Scrooge is redeemed, reconciled with his nephew and his neighbours, and becomes a second father to his assistant's son, Tiny Tim. Ludlam finds the humor as well as the pathos in this Victorian melodrama.   Start time: EVENING Performances 7:30 p.m.   Final Saturday Performance: 2:00 p.m.                             Thursday, Friday, Saturday                                 DOMINO THEATRE        52 CHURCH STREET        KINGSTON, ONT.        K7M 1H3   Tickets available at:  a) The Grand Theatre box office 613-530-2050 b) Online at: www.kingstongrand.ca c) The Domino Theatre door on the night of the performance if tickets available (cash, credit and debit now accepted)   Seniors and members $16 Thursdays only at the Domino Theatre door.   Adults: $20    Students: $10    Children: $10
