The Kingscourt Branch is now permanently closed.
The City of Kingston has come to an agreement with the Limestone District School Board regarding the sale of the Kingscourt Branch property. Formal transfer of the property takes place on October 2, 2017, and the building will then be used by the school board's contractor as a construction office while the new school is being built, and will then be demolished. The site of the former library branch will be used for the sports fields for the new intermediate/secondary school.
The Library will have a presence in the new school built on the QECVI/library site. The Limestone District School Board (LDSB) is providing the Library with enough space to house two kiosks or vending machines where they can be easily accessed by the public. The Library will also be able to utilize the community space in the school to offer programming.
