Thinking of Donating?

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!

Start the Year Off Right!

Get out and enjoy some of that fresh air today. Take a walk to the library! We’re open, and we’re looking forward to seeing all of you this week. While we don’t have any programs running this week, we will have lots of movies, books, and magazines back on the shelves, so wander in and find something great to take home.

If you’re wondering what’s coming up this month, take a look at our website and download the Winter calendar. A lot of the programs require registration, so make sure you get your name on the list early. Resolve that this year will be the year you take advantage of all of the great things the library has to offer!

We’re open today from 1:30 – 8pm. See you at the library!

The End of the Year

There are only a few days left in 2017, so while you make your resolutions, be sure to put the library at the top of your list. We have plenty of exciting programs coming up in 2018 for children, teens, and adults, as well as our “usual” fare of books, magazines, DVDs, online resources, and much, much more! Make 2018 the year you do more without spending more…and that means coming to the library.

We’ll be closed on New Year’s Day, so make sure to get in before then to bring all your items up to date, or get a few things before you settle in for the weekend.


FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29 —- Open 9:30am – 5:30pm

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30 —- Open 10:00am – 5:00pm



Bye bye 2017…

We’re open!

Happy Wednesday!  Yes, the library is open today, and we’re excited to get back in and see all of your friendly faces!

We’re going to be busy checking in books today, so please forgive us if there are a few line-ups when you come in. The first day open after holidays can be a bit hectic, but we’ll do our best to keep things moving.

See you from 1:30pm – 8:00pm!
