Staches Galore!

It was the 1st Annual Moustache Photobomb Contest for the Carleton Place Public Library. We handed out many, many moustache kits and asked our patrons to take them home and take the craziest photo they could think of…using the moustaches. The pictures came pouring in last week, and now we have a tough decision to make. After all, the coveted “Moustache Medal” is at stake!  We’ll announce the winner later this week.

Here are the entries. Do you have a favourite?

Drumz!

Mystic Drumz visited us last week at the Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium, and we had so much fun!  There were plenty of different instruments, lots of laughter and great interaction with the audience. Our young friends had a great time!

We laughed ourselves silly when the “alien” visited! Take me to your leader!

We can’t wait until our next fun library event!

What Will They Make?

We’ve got paint. We’ve got glitter. We’ve got stickers and glue and markers. Today is Mini House Design at the library for our young friends aged 6 – 9. We expect everyone to leave here today with a mini-house, perfect for fairies, gnomes or even birds! We’ll post some of our favourites on our Facebook page later this week, so don’t forget to check back! We’re getting creative at the library during the March Break!

 

 

Book in a Jar

For our special teen event during the March Break, we’re having a “Book in a Jar” contest! There will be three jars in the YA section to look at, each with a certain book inside. Pick one up, figure it out and fill out a ballot. book in a jar

It might be easy, it might be tricky…but it’ll be fun! Maybe you’ll even win a prize!

Extra! Extra!

Our March Break programs begin next week. If you’re looking for fun things to do, we have them in spades at the library. You can check out our March Break calendar on the right of this blog if you still haven’t made any plans, but first up on Monday is “Extra! Extra!”, our fun newspaper themed event for kids aged 8 – 12.

Registration is required and there are a few spaces left, so call today if you want to attend. We’re going to be using some skills and teamwork in a fun newspaper themed scavenger hunt, and then do a great craft to take home. As always, this is a parent-free event!
