Halloween Storytime Drop In!

Do you have little ones who are eager to get out tonight? We’re holding a Halloween Storytime Drop In for 2-5 year olds this afternoon at 1:30pm. It’ll be a fun half hour of spooky stories and more–all aimed at the younger crowd.

Dress up, if you like, and drop in. No registration necessary. See you later……..

Long Weekend

It’s a long weekend coming up, and that means the library will be closed for an extra day. Make sure you drop in ahead of Thanksgiving to pick out new materials, renew items, or to use our WiFi. While we’re closed, you’ll still have access to our online resources, but you’ll need your library card and PIN to access them, so make sure you’ve got that all sorted.

Here are the library hours as follows:

Friday, October 6th — OPEN 9:30am – 5:30pm

Saturday, October 7th — OPEN 10:00am – 5:00pm

Sunday, October 8th — CLOSED

Monday, October 9th — CLOSED

Enjoy your long weekend!

 

Funtivities!

Looking for something to do during PA Days this year? We’ve got a plan–and we’re calling them “Funtivity Days”!
 
Drop in during a Funtivity Day for Lego in the afternoon between 1:30 – 3:30pm. If it also happens to be a snow day, we’ll have a special I Spy, as well.
 
Funtivity Days are drop in only–no registration required. But keep in mind, these Lego afternoons have minimal supervision. If you have young children, please plan on staying in the room.
 
Funtivity days fall on Oct. 6 & 27, Nov. 24, Jan 26 & 31, Feb. 16, Apr. 27, May 18 & June 8. (We celebrate all PA Days for children in our communities, including the Upper Canada School Board, the Catholic School Board of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa Public School Board, and the Ottawa Catholic School Board. We understand that not every school has the same PA Days, so please consult your OWN school schedule.)

Halloween Costume Exchange

It’s the second year in a row for our Halloween Costume Exchange! If you have a gently used, clean costume that your child has outgrown, consider donating it to the library exchange. We’re taking costumes from Oct. 2 – 13!

And don’t forget to come back during the week of October 23rd to find a costume to pick up. Hopefully, there will be plenty for everyone to choose from.

Sorry, we can’t return costumes after the event, so if you really don’t want to part with it, please keep that in mind. It’s a nice way to recycle, clean out your closets, and make some little one very happy.

Sorry, We’re Closed.

The library is CLOSED today. Feel free to place any returns in our blue return box on the front steps.

Don’t forget, you can still access all of our online resources by visiting http://carletonplacelibrary.ca . Download eBooks and Audiobooks using Libby (formerly OverDrive), find a good book to read or a great show to download on Hoopla, or read magazines through Flipster. All you need is your library card and PIN!

See you tomorrow!
