Library Services at the Kingston Secondary School

Community Consultation - Library service at Kingston Secondary School

In 2015 and 2016, the Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL), Limestone District School Board (LDSB) and the City of Kingston explored ways to maintain library service in the Kingscourt neighbourhood following the closure of the Kingscourt Branch in 2017.

After considering a number of options, the decision was made to devote approximately 300 square feet of space in the new Kingston Secondary School, located at 145 Kirkpatrick Street, to library service. This space will house technologies that will allow library patrons to browse and borrow library materials, pick up reservations and return items. You can read reports to Kingston City Council from July 2015 and January 2016 for more information on the options considered for the school and for library service in the Kingscourt area.

This survey will take just a couple of minutes to complete. Your feedback will be used to help determine which technologies will be purchased for the space and their sizes and capabilities. Library programs, such as children's story times, are not being considered for this site at this time. 

Thank you for taking the time for provide us with your feedback! A report has been posted summarizing the feedback received through out community survey. The report provides staff responses to community comments and outlines next steps.
