You are here
With the KPL Genealogy Fair around the corner, we thought we would take a journey back to our roots. If you want to learn about genetic testing or discover workshops to help you on your genealogy journey, drop by the Central library on Saturday April 21, 2018 between 9am to 3pm.
If you just want to take a walk down memory lane, Digital Living will be right there with you. Check out why cooking, fantasy and more have a special place in our heart, or browse through some music and flip through some of your favourite comics.... you never know what you will rediscover!
"Mythical creatures, brave heroes, and epic adventures pushed the limits of my imagination as a child. I loved to escape into enchanted worlds full of magical tales and legendary quests. These are some of the books that left me spellbound." - Laura, Information Services
Home at the Hearth
"Cooking is at the heartstone of my family. Some of my earliest memories revolve around the kitchen table and learning to cook with my parents. When I moved away from home, they started me off with a family cookbook filled with the memories and recipes we had shared." - Amanda, Information Services
"When we started thinking about our family roots, I immediately knew what kind of music I would choose ... the Country Roots playlist is the sound of my childhood. The twang of guitars and fiddles echoed from my mother's radio and my grandfather's record player in my earliest memories. I only have to hear the opening strains of many of these songs to be instantly transported back home." -Amanda, Information Services
"When I was young, I dreamt of being a cartoonist. This spawned from an early love for syndicated newspaper strips such as Garfield, Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes. While a lack of dedication and talent changed my career goals, I never lost my enjoyment of the comic strips of my childhood." - Kim, Information Services
"A family gathered, a comfy couch, and fresh popcorn are the memories these films bring to mind. From classic musicals to friendly ghosts, these films are reminders of laughter and tears shared together. They are films I can watch time after time." -Laura, Information Services
