Festive fun on the schedule with KFPL this December

Get Festive with KFPL!

The Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) says they are ready to sleigh the holiday season. The library is offering a flurry of free and fun family activities that they say will make winter days merry and hearts as warm as a cup of cocoa.

"There’s ‘snow’ place like KFPL this December," said Brianne Peters, Librarian with Children’s Services. "We believe in the gift of knowledge and are thrilled to offer a generous dose of holiday magic for free. Join us this winter season and discover that the library is where adventures begin, friends are made and memories are created."

On December 2nd, 'Pick a Pine Tree' and learn how tree decorating became one of the oldest holiday traditions. Get creative and make a pinecone ornament to share with loved ones. All supplies are included, and registration is required.

Library puppets will don their winter best on December 12th during a drop-in evening of puppetry and song at the Isabel Turner Branch. Bring the family for puppet shows Bear Snores on and Ask Mr. Polar Bear, starting at 6:30 p.m.

For young artists aged six and up, visit the Pittsburgh Branch on December 16th to create a winter watercolour scene. All painting materials included. The library reminds people to register for this artistic adventure.

Newborns and pre-walkers are included in the holiday fun. The library encourages people to register for Jingle Bell Babies on December 20th at the Calvin Park Branch. Parents and caregivers are in for a festive treat with heartwarming stories, songs and rhymes.

Finally, the celebrations culminate on December 23rd with drop-in Festive Family Storytime at the Isabel Turner and Calvin Park Branches, the perfect opportunity for families to come together and enjoy heartwarming holiday tales.
