A Sign of the Times!

Have you noticed all of the great new signage at the library? We’re slowly beautifying the library…and making it easier for you to find things at the same time!

We have a Teen Zone, a Kid’s Corner, a new reference area sign, and some fantastic non-fiction Dewey signage.

If you’ve ever wondered what you might find down each aisle, now it’s crystal clear. Maybe you’ll even be tempted to look someplace you’ve never been!

Happy searching!

October

october1

It’s October!  And that means fun things happening at the library. This month, we’re all about crafting, book clubs and a new program for Toddlers!

Since today is October 1st, you can now register your child for Halloween Craft Night, which will take place on Tuesday, October 28th from 6-7pm.  This is open to children aged 6-11, and registration is required, so call us to sign up EARLY!  This event will fill up quickly!

Next up is a really fun special storytime with none other than Ronald McDonald! He’ll be visiting the library on Thursday, October 16th at 3pm to do a fun story and visit with our young readers.  This storytime is aimed at those aged 4-7, but everyone is welcome. No registration is necessary for this…so tell all of your friends!

If you’ve been waiting for a book club at the library, wait no longer!  Monday, October 20th from 6:30pm – 8pm will be the first one! Bring along a friend, and bring along a recommendation for our reading list.  Refreshments will be served, so expect it to be a fun evening! We’ll meet the 2nd Monday of each month after that. Registration is required!

We know many of you have been waiting for a Toddler session for those kids from 1-2 years of age…and it’s finally here! Our first session will take place on Thursday, October 23rd at 10am. We’re expecting this to be quite popular, so please call to register ASAP.  We have VERY limited spaces, so don’t be disappointed! (Yes, younger/older siblings are welcome to come along, but please don’t sign them up when registering.)

And in case you’ve been wondering, we’re registering for Forest of Reading this month. Book selections will be out later in the month, and we’ll start visiting schools in December to promote this great reading club for kids in Kindergarten to Grade 8.

Happy Library-ing!

The Big Red Shoes

Ronald

Yes, the man with the big red shoes is coming back to the Carleton Place Public Library again! We’re excited about this visit, which is taking place on Thursday, October 16th at 3pm. It’s aimed at children aged 4-7 years old, but everyone is welcome.  Ronald will read a story and visit with our young friends until it is time for him to leave. It’s going to be so much fun!

The last time Ronald was here, he made quite the splash in the library, so if you happen to be around that day, don’t be surprised if you see him traipsing through the stacks!

No registration is necessary for this fun family storytime, but plan to be here early in order to get a good spot. (Don’t worry parents, he won’t be bringing any McDonald’s treats with him….it’ll be all about the story that afternoon!) Call us at the library for more information. 257-2702.

Get Infected with Knowledge

The Tulsa Community College Library made this great YouTube video to inspire people to go to the library, and know what to do when you get there. “Get Infected with Knowledge” in a zombie theme is BRILLIANT!  Here’s your Friday giggle…
