There will be six small structures housing free books around the city of Kingston next spring. That’s what the Junior League of Kingston hopes. Part of a worldwide movement to offer pop-up libraries (called the Little Free Library), they’re working with the Kingston Library to bring it here. It’ll expand the Kingston Library’s reach, so people all over the city can borrow and return books (for all ages and skill levels), or bring one of their own to trade. And you can help!

On Sunday, September 27th, from 11a-4p, the Junior League is hosting a fundraiser fun day at Forsyth Park in Kingston. Touch a Truck is a chance for kids to see and climb a variety of fire, emergency, and construction vehicles from the Volunteer Firemen’s Hall and Museum, the City of Kingston Public Works, the New York State Police, and Citibus, to name a few. Each vehicle will have a volunteer nearby to help children explore and learn. Kids can honk horns and hear sirens, but not between 11a-12p, when there’s a siren-free hour, great for families with babies or kids with sensory issues. Don’t miss the Roaming Railroad (where kids can ride loops around the field by the zoo) and the Kona Ice truck (with Hawaiian shaved ice)!

Touch a Truck at Forsyth Park in Kingston, a fundraiser for the Junior League of Kingston’s Little Free Library project: Sunday, September 27th, 11a-4p (siren-free from 11a-12p); $5 per person, children under 2 are free with a paying adult. The Roaming Railroad is $3 a ride. Food by The Sports Cone and the Kona Ice Truck will be available for purchase.
