Library taking part in Downtown Promenade


Join us on Saturday, September 4, 10 am – 2 pm

The Municipality of North Grenville, along with the Old Town Kemptville BIA and the Kemptville District Community Association, will be hosting a promenade in Downtown Kemptville to support local businesses, feature local vendors and offer an open street experience.

On Saturday, September 4, part of Prescott Street, from Reuben Crescent South to Reuben Crescent North, will be open to pedestrian traffic only. The public is invited to visit the area from 10 am to 2 pm to visit local vendors and shops, enjoy local music, and check out the fun in the family zone. Local businesses and organizations will have a variety of demos on offer.

The North Grenville Public Library [NGPL] is excited to join in with the following activities:

10th Anniversary Commemorative Display: “It Takes a Community to Raise a Library”: This display looks back at how North Grenville came together to build its beautiful main branch, the Norenberg Building. It will be in the Tallman Room of the Library, which overlooks Kemptville Creek.

Fishing Derby: Library Sue and friends will be leading the NGPL Fishing Derby starting at 10 am at the dock off Rotary Park. Fishing will happen in one-hour blocks, and registering for a block is recommended. To register, send an email to

Participants are encouraged to bring their own rods, but some rods will be available. We’ll provide the bait. There will also be a fun “fishy” craft!

Love Our Local Authors!
We will have a table on the Library’s street front, proudly displaying the works of our local authors, which may be checked out in the library. If you don’t already have a library card, come on in with proof of your North Grenville residential address and we will be happy to give you one. It’s free! (membership available to non-residence for an annual fee)

Art in the Library: NGPL invites you to view the gorgeous work of some of the North Grenville Arts Guild artists, currently on display along the west wall in the Library.
