Toddlers at the Library

toddlerWe’re just finishing up with babies this fall, and now it’s almost time for Toddlers again! We love when these little ones come for toddler time—sessions filled with stories, songs, rhymes, and even some American Sign Language!

If you have a child aged 1-2 years old, we’re taking registrations beginning Wednesday, October 19th, for our Thursday morning sessions that start on November 3rd. Each session will last about 25 minutes, and is a great transition between babytime and storytime. It’s all about learning some literacy skills, and having a great time at the library.

These sessions tend to be sort of small, so if you’re not a fan of the big groups (like babytime and storytime), this might be a nice way to introduce your child to the library, and to get out of the house. Give us a call this week, or drop by the library to sign up in person. We can’t wait!

Star Wars Reads Day

STAR WARS READS DAY!At the Carleton Place Public Library, we’ll be celebrating Star Wars Reads Day on Saturday, October 8/16 from 10am – 5pm. Drop in anytime to play a special Star Wars I Spy game, help us to defeat Darth Vader, and take home a few Star Wars books. We may even have a surprise or two!

No registration is necessary, and this is open to all ages. May the Force be with You!

Halloween Craft Night

exhibitionWe’re gearing up for Halloween Craft Night at the library on Tuesday, October 25, from 6-7pm . It’ll be a fun evening for kids who like to craft…and get a little spooky.

Registration begins today, so if you have a child aged 6 – 11 who would like to attend, please give us a call, or drop by the library to sign up today. Hurry, this will fill up fast!

And if they’d like to wear a costume, we’ll be extra happy!

Movie Day!

It’s Movie Day  and French Storytime at the library.This morning, our storytime starts at 10:30am, and we’ll sing songs, read books, and do a bit of colouring, all en Francais.This is a great session for children just learning French, and for those who can speak it farily well.

This afternoon we’re showing “Inside Out”  at 1pm. Drop in and watch some of it or all of it. It’s a fun way to pass a PA Day at the library!


Class Visits

Did you know that the Carleton Place Public Library has a number of classes from various schools who visit us on a monthly basis? We invite them to come when the library isn’t open, and it makes the visit fun and easy. They’ll walk down from school, take out books, and we always read something together as a group. It’s a great way to expand on their reading options, and get them outside for some fresh air.

This fall, we’re starting some of the groups off with this magical new read called FURTHERMORE by Tahereh Mafi.
