We’re Having Conversations!

It’s our very first Conversation Circle today at the library!

Join us for a great afternoon of conversation about any topic of mutual interest, exchange information, experience and knowledge, meet others in the community with the same interests, make new friends, and have fun!
Every second Wed, starting Sept. 13th.
Refreshments provided.

Programs are Back!

Next week, our programs are starting again! If you haven’t signed up for something good, make sure you take a look at our calendar and give us a call. Some programs are full, but we have spaces for many more (and don’t forget our great drop ins).

See you at the library!

Programs for Adults!

Yes, we’re excited about adult programs this fall at the Carleton Place Public Library! There are plenty of exciting options to choose from, whether you’re interested in a drop in, a weekly series, or more than one event. You can find the whole schedule on the Carleton Place Public Library website, or drop in to pick up a fall schedule to take home. But here are a few of the highlights:

  • Monthly Adult Craft club for people who LOVE to create! We’ll do a different craft each month, just bring your creativity! (4th Monday of the month) 6:30pm
  • Adult Book Club is a popular monthly event. Read the selected book, then come to chat about it with other library patrons. We meet the 2nd Monday of each month, at 6:30pm.
  • The Monthly Meditation Break will leave you feeling relaxed, better able to deal with stress, and you’ll have the chance to make some new friends, too. Local meditation practitioner Cathy Bogaerts joins us Sept. 28, Oct. 19, Nov. 16, & Dec. 21 at 6:30pm.
  • Our National Film Board nights are continuing with a great selection of Canadian films, all in celebration of Canada 150. See our schedule for dates and times.

Apps, Apps, and more Apps

We know that some people find apps a bit confusing. And the more current the library becomes, the more apps we have available to our patrons. But what if you’d like to use them and find them too tricky to figure out? No problem! We’re having a library apps workshop to help you figure things out.

Please call us to register for this workshop which takes place on Saturday, July 22 at 10:30am. Spaces are limited, so please call early.
