Adult Craft Club

Our last Adult Craft Club of the spring is happening next week. Join us on Monday, June 25 at 6:30pm for another super fun crafting evening.

And remember, adults, it’s okay to colour outside the lines. Go ahead, be creative!


Digital Device Workshop

We’re having our last Digital Device Workshop before summer this week. Join us on Wednesday, June 20th from 2-4pm to ask questions about your cell phone, tablet, or other digital device. Please bring your device charged and ready to go.

We’ll share some quick tips, and then open it up to participants to offer things they’ve learned, or things they want to know about their devices. This is always an informative and interesting session.

Call us to register at 257-2702.

What’s YOUR thing?

What’s YOUR thing?

Do you collect giant paperclips?
Do your friends get tired of hearing you talk about your skincare routine?
Are you planning a vacation that takes you to all of the places in your favourite movie?

This summer, we want to hear about YOUR thing…what makes you happy, what you love to do in your spare time, what gets you talking and your blood flowing. Everyone has something they enjoy…and we want to know about YOUR thing!

We’ll be devoting special days this summer to something we’re calling “Bring Your Thing”. It’s our version of Show & Tell. If you have a collection you’d love to show off, a hobby you’d like to demonstrate, or even start up a discussion about your latest Netflix binge, we’d love for you to sign up for a spot.

Children, teens, and adults ALL welcome to “Bring Your Thing”. The more, the merrier. Let’s bring back the excitement of Show and Tell to the library this summer. Drop by the library to sign up today!

Throwing Your Money Away?

Skin care, concerts, new clothes, lavish trips….the life of many twenty-somethings who haven’t gotten into family responsibilities yet, and now have some money in their pockets each week from a steady job. (Okay…it’s the life of a lot of people…not just 20-somethings!)

But that money goes fast, and debt is an easy trap to fall into. While we learn a lot about numbers in school, we don’t often learn about budgeting, and that’s where many of us go wrong when we’re young. It’s a fast spiral into the world of money woes if you’re not careful, so we’re here to help.

Coming up on Saturday, June 9th at 11:30am (so you can sleep in!), we’re hosting a workshop called “Simple Budgeting for Beginners” with local finance guru Nataliya Tyagley. She’ll show you how to develop a budget, identify financial goals beyond purchasing that new pair of shoes, and learn how to understand the balance between spending, saving and borrowing.

Call us today to register at 257-2702.  And don’t forget to bring along your friends! This will be a FUN session, but also informative. And then you can go out for lunch after and celebrate all of your new savings tactics!

Alkalinity: The Base-ics of Health!

If you’ve been to any of our Spring Health workshops with Laura Kissmann, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, you won’t want to miss this one–the last one of Spring!

On Tuesday, May 29th at 6:30pm, Laura will be offering an introduction to alkalinity, exploring PH balancing to promote healing and preventing disease. She’ll give a board overview of the subject and answer your questions, so get to ready to make some changes in your life.

Spaces are limited, so please call us to register at 257-2702. There are still spaces left, but this will be popular, so don’t wait. Reserve your space today!

Are we feeling spring yet???

If you haven’t signed up yet for this month’s adult Make and Take DIY, you should! We’re making seed bombs!

The idea is simple…soil+seeds in an earth-friendly “wrapper”. Join us on Monday, April 23rd at 6:30pm to get your hands dirty! What do you do with the seed bombs? Once the weather gets a little warmer…you throw them! Yes, that’s right….you throw away the seed bombs, and wait to see what grows!

It’s a lot of fun, environmentally friendly, and it’ll be a an interesting way to pass the evening. Meet some new people, or bring a friend….but don’t forget to call and register first. We want to have enough supplies for everyone! 257-2702.

Poetry Reading at the Library

We still have tickets for the wonderful Poetry Night at the Carleton Place Public Library on Friday, April 20th at 6:30pm. Join us for an evening of local poets Carol Stephen, Dean Steadman, Cliff D. Bird, Claudia Coutu Radmore and Lesley Strutt, who will read their own work and maybe answer a few questions at the end of the evening. It’s a great opportunity to get out of the house, and do something different. We promise, these poets will be fascinating!

Tickets are only $5 each, and all proceeds from that night’s event will go toward our Children’s Summer Literacy Program. Don’t miss out…this is just a special event for National Poetry Month!
