Engage KFPL - Learn, Share Connect

Extended Hours Project

About the Project

The Extended Hours Project will provide Kingston East residents with more opportunities to use their public library branch, expanding access to a vibrant community space where they can connect and learn.

This project will offer a bridge to the planned building renovation and service expansion, with ongoing evaluation as the project is implemented.

When the project begins, the Pittsburgh Branch will offer a blend of full service and Extended Hours access. Library staff will continue to support patrons on site, maintaining the current level of service of 38 hours staffed hours per week; users of Extended Hours will be able to connect with staff at other branches when assistance is needed.

KFPL is committed to offering a welcoming and inclusive space for the community. We will work with organizations such as the Kingston Police to complete a safety audit, identifying and assessing safety risks and developing mitigation strategies. Community feedback will be incorporated into this process.
