March Break 2019!

It’s here…our March Break calendar for 2019!  It’s jam-packed with lots of great sessions for kids of all ages, and we can’t wait to see everyone!

Most of the programs are all-age drop-ins (or age-specific, in the case of things like Lego), so no registration is required. However, there ARE two registration programs, and one that requires tickets.

  1. Join us on Wednesday, March 13 at 10am for Magic with Tyler! This family-friendly event takes place at the Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium, and tickets are on sale now at the library for $3 each (children & adults). It’ll be a fun morning of magic, laughter, and amazement, and is perfect for children aged 4 and up. And if you can’t make it to the library to get a ticket beforehand, we’ll be selling tickets at the door on the day of the event for $4 each!
  2. On Thursday, March 14 at 11:30am, we’re having Yoga for Kids at the library! Registration is a MUST for this program aimed at 7-12 year olds, as spaces are limited. We’re excited to welcome  Andrea from Hamsa Yoga in Carleton Place, who will run a light-hearted yoga session aimed specifically at kidlets. The aim is to bring joy, relaxation, strength, confidence, and inner fulfillment to our young participants, so we know this will be a popular session! Please wear comfy clothing and bring some water!
  3. Last but not least, we’re welcoming Young Writers  (ages 7-12) to join us on Friday, March 15 from 9:30am-11:30am for a fun session of character development. We’ve planned lots of interesting and interactive writing fun for this event, so make sure to sign your young writer up today. Spaces are limited!

Take time to look through the calendar, and if you have any questions, or would like to register for anything, please give us a call at 257-2702. We’re having a Mellow March Break!


Join the Flock!

For the entire month of January, if you donate $1 toward our Summer Literacy Tutoring Program, you’ll become one of the flock!

You’ll receive a cute sheep to put in our yard, and a fun take-home bookmark as a thank you. We’d love to fill up this entire yard with sheep, so bring a loonie the next time you drop by the library. Don’t be sheepish about donating.

Support a young reader…you’ll be “wooly” happy you did!

Une Heure de Conte en Francais

We’re changing things up a little!  Une Heure de Conte en Francais is moving to Saturdays at 1pm! Join us for a fun half hour French Storytime for young ones with some French vocabulary. There is no age limit, and no registration is required. Just stop in at the library at 1pm on Saturdays for some French stories, songs, and more!

Starting January 26th!


We hope you’ve had a great holiday, and are looking forward to getting back into the swing of things!

We’re starting programs at the library this week, so make sure you drop by our website to download and print your own copy. Many of them require registration, and we don’t want anyone to miss out!


Storytime in 2019!

We’re thinking about Storytime again, and that means it’s time to sign up. Storytime is a fun weekly program for children aged 2-5 years old, and their parent or caregiver. We read books, sing songs, and do lots of fun early literacy activities!

Storytime runs Wednesday mornings from 10-1:30am. Registration is a must because spaces are limited, so give us a call today if you’d like to sign your little one up. (And don’t worry, we have actual people reading the books.)
