We run lots of fun programs at the library, and one of our most popular (and constantly growing programs) is our Children’s Summer Literacy Tutoring program. Let’s face it—funding is tough for libraries, and we’d love to keep this one going at full speed, and possibly expand. But we need your help. That’s where our FUNdraising program begins!
Starting this week, drop into the library and stop by our FUNdraising wall. It’s loaded with envelopes, each with a denomination on the front. Pick a donation you’re comfortable with, take the envelope, and fill it with cash or a cheque in that amount. Any and EVERY donation is welcome, even the little ones, so don’t feel shy.
For donations over $10, we can provide a charitable receipt, so keep that in mind–it’s good for us, and for you. Cheques should be made payable to the Carleton Place Public Library. And if you don’t have time (or the cash on you) when you drop in, make sure to take the donation envelope of your choice and bring it back in later.
As always, a HUGE thank you to all of our patrons for making our library such an important part of our community. We couldn’t do any of this without you!

Don’t forget, tomorrow is our Digital Device workshop, and Caroline has lots of interesting and informative things planned. Bring your device…and lots of questions! This is a great way to learn more about your new device and share any tips or tricks you’ve learned with others. It’s free…just call us to register!
Fifty two books in fifty two weeks? Give it a try!
We have some great financial seminars coming up this winter, including our first event on stocks, on January 17th, at 2pm. Nataliya Tyagley from Edward Jones will be here to answer all your questions about stocks and investments.
Please call to register at 257-2702.
Our new Cookbook Book Club starts tonight! It’s labeled as food, fun, and friends! Take out a cookbook (or use one you own), try out a few of the recipes, and bring something you made (along with the cookbook) to the meeting for everyone to try. You’ll have a chance to talk about the cookbook and why you liked it–or didn’t–and hear about other great new cookbooks. You’ll meet other foodies, maybe try some new foods, and hopefully leave here with a full stomach and lots of inspiration!
Give us a call to register. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
(Don’t worry if you haven’t had time to cook anything this time. We’ll have a few samples ready from our own experiments, and instructions for what to do next month. Just come out and meet everyone tonight!)
We’re starting up our programs again this week, and one of our favourites is coming tomorrow. Give us a call to register your 2-5 year old for storytime….either the 9:30am or 10:15am session. We’re looking forward to seeing all of those young storytimers again!
Honestly, one of the funniest things we’ve seen in a long time. Version one….a Hollywood Reporter cover with the Kardashians. The Invercargill City Librarians did their own take on this back in the fall. Totally unplanned, right?
