If you’re not one of those lucky people who will be firmly planted on a warm, sandy beach next week, join us at the library for lots of great activities for the whole family. If you haven’t picked up our March Break calendar, you can download one here.

We’re excited to see everyone. Don’t forget to bring your overdue books back, or a donation for the Food Bank, and we’ll forgive your fines! Isn’t that a BREAK?

See you Monday……..

Happy Valentine’s Day…one day early!

20150210_133655This week, we held our annual Valentine’s Craft Night for our younger set. As usual, we had lots of enthusiastic crafters join us to make lots of lovely (and yummy) things. We made the cute cereal heart bird feeders shown above, and also some pretty 3D paper boxes. There were games, LOTS of treats and even some Valentine’s Day mad libs. It was all very heart-y.

If you’re like most of us, Valentine’s Day has probably crept up on you. But there is still plenty of time to make your own delightful Valentine to give to that special someone. And what better way than to spend a weekend morning crafting something cute with your little ones?  If you’re looking for some easy printable and fun Valentine’s you can make at home, I rely on these great sites for inspiration. They always have fun things to make, and they usually don’t involve more than items you already have at home.

How about these cute pop-up card Valentines from Skip to My Lou?

Or what about a yo-yo Valentine from The Crafty Crow?

This happy camper Valentines Card box from Suzy’s Sitcom is super cute, too!

So, Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our wonderful readers, from all of us at the Carleton Place Public Library!  We hope you have a crafty, wonderful weekend!
