Celebrate First Nations Public Library Week with Testsi’nehtará:ron/Bead It

As part of Canadian Library Month, First Nations Public Library Week (FNPLW) encourages all Ontario
libraries to raise awareness of First Nation resources, services, programs and activities, and peoples and
cultures past and present. Celebrated from Oct. 3-7, FNPLW has a tradition of collaboration, celebration

and gathering. The Kingston Frontenac Public Library is celebrating with KFPL and Liv Rondeau’s first in-
person session of Testsi’nehtará:ron/Bead It!

Rondeau, of Flint and Maple Beadwork, has hosted several popular online beading workshops with
KFPL. Now on Oct. 8, Testsi’nehtará:ron comes to the Isabel Turner Branch from 1-4 p.m. Attendees will
be beading a bookmark with all supplies provided.
“First Nations Public Library Week is another opportunity to explore Indigenous-run libraries on
traditional lands or diverse Indigenous collections and programs at your local municipal library,” said
Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Liv is a talented local creator and entrepreneur, and having
her with us to bead a bookmark is so fitting for this special week.”
Space is limited, and those who wish to attend are encouraged to register at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/

Thank you to the Friends of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library for generously supporting this
program.
