Don’t forget the library will be closed today. The return box will go out tomorrow morning at 9am. Happy Turkey Day!
Here in Canada, the long weekend is upon us. Yes, once again it’s Thanksgiving! A reminder to all our library patrons that we’ll be closed on Monday, October 8. (Don’t worry, if your books are due that day, you won’t be charged any fines for that day.) The blue return box will go out on Tuesday morning, so keep all your books and videos until then.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our wonderful patrons, friends and family. See you on Tuesday!
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to all of our Canadian patrons, friends, and family! We hope that everyone has a safe, happy and fun long weekend. Don’t forget, the library will be open on Saturday for regular hours, but we’ll be closed on Monday. The bookdrop box will go out at 9am on Tuesday morning, so save your returns until then. (Please don’t leave them outside the door over Sunday/Monday. They might not be there on Tuesday!)
For all of our Canadian followers and patrons of the library, Thanksgiving weekend is just around the corner. Don’t forget that we have plenty of magazines with great ideas for decorating your table, new recipes and fun crafts for the kids while the adults sit and chat over pumpkin pie. If you’d like to try something new at your dinner, there are so many wonderful cookbooks available….desserts, gluten-free recipes, vegetarian, pot-luck ideas and more!
If you drop in now, you’ll have time to prepare your shopping list and get everything ready for next weekend. I made these little pilgrim hats and bonnets for one of our display windows, but you could make life-sized versions to hand out to the kids before dinner. Fun!
Today is the last day before the long weekend celebrating Thanksgiving here in Canada. Yes, I know that it must be confusing to American readers, but Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated the 2nd weekend in October every year. Whether we celebrate the harvest or just give thanks for friends and family, most of us will be getting together for great food and lots of fun this weekend.
For those of you in the area,
the Carleton Place Public Library will be closed on Monday, October 11th, 2010.
This means, we’re open regular hours on Saturday, closed Sunday and Monday and we’ll open again at 2:30pm on Tuesday. There will be NO BLUE BOX outside while we are closed. Please do not return books or leave donations outside until Tuesday, as they often get damaged. Don’t worry…..you will not be charged fines for overdue books on the days we’re closed.
So, to all our patrons and readers in Canada….
