Ontario Library Week!


It’s Ontario Public Library Week, and that means it’s time to celebrate your public library! If you haven’t been in a while, this would be a great week to stop by your local public library and see what new and exciting things they have going on.  We’re always changing and offering exciting new programs for our patrons, so drop by to see what’s new.

At the Carleton Place Public Library, we’re starting up two new fun things this week:  our first ever library Book Club, and a Toddler Time! Both programs cater to a different set of patrons, and both are garnering a lot of interest.  If you want to know more about either of these programs, give us a call, or drop by the library for information.

  • Did you know that this week alone, we’re running four different programs, two in the evening and two in the morning?
  • Did you know that we have volunteers almost every day who help us with a variety of tasks that keep our library running smoothly each week?
  • Did you know that we have free wi-fi, computers with printers, photocopy services and help with your electronic devices when you’re downloading eBooks or audiobooks?
  • Did you know we have a superb genealogy room, access to Ancestry.com, and an exciting local history blog  where you can find out amazing things about our community?
  • Did you know we have an excellent selection of magazines that patrons can check out just like a book?
  • Did you know we purchase new DVDs for our collection every couple of weeks?
  • Did you know we offer a wonderful service to seniors and shut-ins, delivering books to those who cannot get out?
  • Did you know we are a community location that offers student volunteer hours for high school students who need them in order to graduate–and we currently have two students volunteering now?
  • Did you know we have a lovely room available for rental on a half-day basis, for those times you might need to conduct a meeting or hold a special event?

There are so many wonderful things this library—-and every public library—-has to offer. Plan on visiting yours today!
