The snow isn't here quite yet, but that doesn't mean you can't bundle up and enjoy the cold weather. There's lots to do this winter in Lennox & Addington County. Take a look at some of the fun activities that are available when the snow flies.
You won't always find the perfect gift shopping online or in the big box stores. With this in mind, I recently decided to partake in a shopping trip to the village of Bath.
This quaint community is located along the Loyalist Parkway between Kingston and the Glenora Ferry. It overlooks Lake Ontario and offers a beautiful view of Amherst Island to the south.
We invite you to visit us at the L&A County Museum & Archives this holiday season. Please take note of our hours of operation:
December has come upon us and the images of our Christmas past flood into our memories. It is all around us –the visual barrage of lights, television commercials, the Santa on every corner, music in every store, party after party, present after present. Sometimes it is just too much.
Please take note of our library closures over the 2018 holiday season. Regular operating hours apply unless specified below.
Please also note that we'll be taking a programming break from December 24th through January 6th. Programs will return on the 7th.

Once in a blue moon I receive a note from a reader asking me to review something for this column, or hoping to share a book they have loved. One such note came from Rosamund Hyde of Tamworth. She sent a lovely little write-up about Rilla of Ingleside by LM Montgomery, a book she describes as “a hidden treasure within a well-known body of work.” She gave me permission to share her review here.

The fall/winter season at the museum is nothing short of exciting... and busy! Between our regular programs of Tuesday Night at the Museum, Live at the Museum and Museum Kids, I am so excited to have planned a busy few weeks of events for our entire community to enjoy.
