In light of KFL&A region's move to orange-restrict level in Ontario's COVID-19 response framework, we will be making some minor changes to our operations as we approach Christmas.

Moving from passive to active screening – All persons entering our libraries will be asked a series of screening questions provided by the Ministry of Health. Persons may be asked to access library services remotely if they do not meet the screening requirements. In order to facilitate this, our Napanee patrons will be required to enter the library through the upper level of the building.

At Home For The Holidays

December 17, 2020
Amber Meyer

For me, the holiday season is made up of a series of magical moments. Festive lights and displays, traditions, the smell of cookies baking, and the beaming excitement from kiddos everywhere you turn. This time of year is usually quite busy at the museum with holiday activities and concerts and of course our celebration of The Christmas Tree.  Although we have had to do things a little differently, the Museum is still full of holiday cheer.

The big day will soon be here... Do you have everything for everyone?

It's getting down to crunch time. The game clock is approaching zero. There's no room for procrastination. You need bite the bullet and wrap up your Christmas shopping. And you need to do it now.

Cross Items Off Your List by Shopping in L&A

While shopping isn't necessarily my favourite thing to do, I do enjoy finding gifts that I know that others will enjoy receiving. It's always fun to come across items that will be a guaranteed hit when they're unwrapped on Christmas morning.

Whether you shop in-store or online, there are plenty of options to choose from here in Lennox & Addington County. If you're looking for something for children, your spouse, your parents, or your in-laws (which hopefully you can defer the choosing to your spouse), chances are you can find what you need right here.
