Carleton Place Winter Carnival

16387347_1201530616628861_8551207839281272972_nThe Carleton Place Winter Carnival is this weekend, and you still have time to drop off your Birthday Cards for Chilly at the library!

Draw, write or craft a birthday card and drop it off in the special mailbox in the library, and we’ll make sure Chilly gets it.

The Carleton Place Winter Carnival will be featuring them on their Facebook page, as well as hanging them up to decorate the Carleton Place Canoe Club on Carnival day. One lucky winner will be drawn at random on February 25th to win a special prize. Isn’t that fun?

Parents can pick up their child’s artwork at the Canoe Club that day too! #cpwintercarnival #chillysbirthday #CPWC5

 Happy Winter Carnival-ing!

Creating Great Characters

2We still have a few spaces available tonight in our writing workshop on “Creating Great Characters”. This is the last in our winter series, but we’ll be presenting several more as the months go on.

Give us a call at 257-2702 to put your name on our list. We hope to see you tonight at the library!

TELUS Internet & Smartphone Safety at the Library

wise2Internet and cell phone safety is a big concern for most parents. And with kids getting their own devices and being online from an early age, they need to know some smart facts about what they need to do to protect themselves online.

Kim Schreader, from our local TELUS location, will join us on Tuesday, March 14th from 2-3pm for a fun and informative session about Internet and Smartphone safety for kids. They’ll learn about all kinds of things that they probably aren’t aware are causing them to broadcast their locations, what actually stays online even after a post is deleted, and much more.

This is going to be a popular program, and is aimed at kids in Grades 4-6, so call the library today to sign up. 257-2702

Introduction to Android

androidDo you have a tablet (not an iPad), or an Android SmartPhone (not at iPhone)? Join us at the Carleton Place Public Library on Saturday, March 25 at 2pm for an Introduction to Androids.

This seminar will introduce you to the basics of how to use an Android device. It will be a hands-on session, so be sure to bring your device with you…charged and already set up. (Unfortunately, we won’t have enough time to go through an initial set-up.) We’ll cover many things that will get you downloading apps, sending emails, or joining Facebook. And as always, if you need extra help, you can sign up for one of our sessions with our resident tech-spert Caroline.

Registration for this workshop is required, and it will fill up fast, so please call us at 257-2702.

We’re Crafting Tonight!

februaryWe’re really looking forward to tonight! It’s our Valentine’s Craft Night at the library!  While the event registration is full, if you drop by the library tonight, I’m sure you’ll hear a lot of excited kids working on their crafts.

We’ll have plenty of heart-y things to make, a few games, and maybe a treat or two. If your young person missed out on this, don’t fret—we still have ONE MORE craft night coming in April. Happy Valentine’s Day!
