It’s always been a little tricky to find our website in a Google search online. But now it’s easy! We have a great new web address:
That’s right! We can now be found at http://www.carletonplacelibrary.ca
If you have older bookmarks, please change them now to stay current. Pretty soon, you won’t be able to use the old web address, and we wouldn’t want you to lose touch with us. The site looks and functions exactly the same way, so you won’t notice anything different once you’re there, but we feel different…more like ourselves!
Tell everyone you know!
If you’ve been a fan of Veronica Roth’s DIVERGENT series, you no doubt know that the final installment of the series, ALLEGIANT, is about to hit theatres in mid March, just in time for March Break. As with most of the Young Adult books turned into movies, this one is being split into two movies to draw in more fans (and money) one would assume. The final trailer for this first installment of ALLEGIANT was just released:
If you’re itching to fill in the gaps, or just want to know a little more about the movie, we’ve got the movie-tie in book on order here at the library. Drop by our library catalog today to reserve it for you once it comes in!

We’re excited to really get going on this Tumblr thing for the library…and now we have our own Tumblr page!
You can find us at Tales of a Small Town Library on Tumblr (just click the link to go there now). So far, we’re adding links slowly, but it’s going to be a fun, ongoing project for us. If you love Tumblr, give us a quick follow and we promise lots of interesting library and book related posts weekly!
For our Frivolous Friday post, I bring you designer Katerina Kamprani’s “Uncomfortable Project”. It’s all about re-designing common household products into frustratingly unusable objects. One look at them, and you’ll see why….but I bet you’ll also be howling with laughter.
How about a set of stairs that lead just far enough away from a door to be awkward? Or a pot with two handles….on the same side? Or a pair of rainboots with open toes? Right. Terrible designs, but brilliantly funny. Visit her website to see all of her current project ideas, or join her Facebook page for regular updates and design discussion.
These ideas will make you start looking at regular objects in a brand new way, I guarantee. Any ideas of your own? How about a pair of glasses that aren’t joined at the bridge of the nose? Or a round bar of soap? The possibilities are endless, really.
