Our Schedule is Out!

Have you been to the library in the past week? We have our entire fall schedule out! Drop in and pick up a newsletter, which details all of the programs we’ll be running from now until the end of December. It’s got everything from children’s programs to family visits and even a book club invite!

Happy Fall!

It’s Almost Time!

20140811_102431

While we’re still a week away from starting up fall programs, we’re busy planning everything in sight. First up, it’s Book Buck Spending Week #2!  And while we had lots of teens in to spend their book bucks in the first week, we know there are still plenty of those little green bucks out there. Plus, we have TONS of great things still to spend them on!

So, starting Monday, Sept. 8th….drop in anytime to spend the Book Bucks.  We’ll be re-filling the window all week long, so if you still have a book or two to finish, you can keep collecting. But don’t save these bucks for next year….once Sept. 8 – 13th is over, your book bucks will be no good. So, plan on a spending spree next week. Can’t wait to see everyone!

The Library is Closed Today!

Just a reminder, the library is closed today. Please keep all return materials until Tuesday, as the blue return box won’t be out until then. Don’t worry, you won’t be charged any fines for Sunday or Monday!

She is fearless!

We like to have fun at the library. And a big part of that has been our summer student, Emma, and her creative talents that keep our young patrons happy and coming back for programs. So this week, we thought we’d challenge her to a little bit of crazy we’re calling the first ever “Carleton Place Public Library Great Scavenger Hunt for Emma!” 

She has a list of items to try to complete this week, and so far, she’s done such an amazing job, I’m wondering why we haven’t done this in the past!

First up this week, she created a Twitter account for a sparkly stapler that gets a lot of attention at the library. If you tweet, give it a follow. It’ll be fun, I’m sure!

Next, she was challenged to create a stained glass window craft (because she’s so crafty with the kids!), that featured a character either from THE LORD OF THE RINGS, or ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK.  We came into work and found this lovely taped to the window!

But the topper on Monday was her challenge to drive through the local Tim Hortons to pick up some timbits for the library. Sounds easy, right?  Not even close!  Her challenge was to order in the form of a Shakespearean sonnet, and she’d get bonus points if it rhymed. She even managed to get her brother to help, giving him the cinematography credit on this great video. Check out this great link to watch the video, and be ready to laugh!

It’s going to be a fun week. Keep an eye on our Facebook page if you want to see more!

 

 

It’s Storytime Again!

We’re getting excited to have lots of little ones join us on Wednesday mornings for Storytime again. And same as last year, we’re opening up the morning to include two sessions—–one at 9:30am and the next one at 10:15am.  When you call to register, you’ll have to make a choice between the early session or the later one, but don’t worry, we’ll have just as much fun at both!

Storytime Poster 2014-2015 Storytime is open to children aged 2-5 years old, but you’re welcome to bring along your baby or toddler if you have an older child wanting to attend. (No need to add their names to our registration list.)

These sessions are filled with songs, books, rhymes and much more to help promote early literacy skills so that your child goes off to school ready to read! While we don’t do crafts during the session anymore, there will always be a fun take-home, so you’ll have something to do later in the day that relates back to storytime. This is a great way to bring back the ideas we focused on that session.

Give us a call to register, or drop by the library if you’d like to know bit more. Yay, it’s storytime again!

Sessions start September 10th!
