Just a reminder, the library will be CLOSED on Monday, May 21st for the Victoria Day Weekend. Make sure to stop in today or tomorrow to get all those items you’ll need for the weekend.  If you forget, you can always access Hoopla or Libby online to download eBooks, Audiobooks and more with your library card and PIN.

And you won’t be charged fines for the extra day we’re closed. Just drop items in our blue return box, and we’ll get them on Tuesday morning.

Have a safe and happy long weekend!



We’re coming up on a long weekend, and that means the library will be closed a few extra days. Drop in this week to get new books, DVDs, magazines, and pick up your PIN number so that you can access items online while we’re closed. That way, you’re never without books!

Mark your calendars:

CLOSED     FRIDAY, March 30

OPEN          SATURDAY, March 31 — 10am – 5pm

CLOSED     SUNDAY, April 1

CLOSED      MONDAY, April 2

We hope to see you this week! Happy Easter!


Don’t Let This Be You

We’ve all been there. It’s Sunday morning during a long weekend, and we realize…..we’re out of books!!

Yes, this is Family Day Weekend, and that means the library will be closed on Monday. If you are a regular user of our online services, you’ll still have access to everything from ebooks to magazines to movies, but if not, you’ll want to make sure you drop by the library before we close on Saturday. You can stock up your card with books, DVDs, magazines, puzzles, museum passes, and more! We’re open today from 9:30am – 5:30pm, and Saturday from 10am – 5pm.  But after that, you’re on your own for a few days.

Feel free to drop off returns anytime this weekend to our blue return box. You won’t be charged fines for Sunday or Monday, so it’s a great time to get those books back to us!

We’ll be here bright and early on Tuesday morning, prepping new books, getting programs ready, organizing schedules and events, and much more, so feel free to call us to sign up for programs, or to place holds before we open at 1:30pm.

Have a happy long weekend, everyone!

March Break Plans!

It’s just early February, but we’re already thinking about March. Our March Break calendar goes out today, and we’re excited about all of the fun we’re going to have!

Each day, we’ll have something going on in the library, whether you drop in, or register for a program. Take a look at the calendar, choose an event, and we’ll see you at the library!

You can download the calendar here, or drop in and pick up a nice, printed version. The contents are the same, but it all depends on you. Most programs this year are drop in…no registration required, but there are a couple that will require you to sign up ahead of time, or drop in to pick up a ticket. Read each event carefully, or call us to find out more. We wouldn’t want someone to be disappointed if a session fills up quickly!

As usual, we’ll have fun things going on at the library that you can take part in no matter what time you come in. Our ever popular daily I Spy game, Giant Sudoku, caption contests and much more will be available from Monday, March 12 – Friday, March 16. And if you can’t make it into the library, there will be something fun each day online on our Facebook page.

Our big event comes on Thursday, March 15th at 10am. Join us at the Carleton Place Town Hall for Eccentric Adam…and wild and fun comedic clown/magician/juggler/entertainer. We’ve got tickets on sale now at the library for $3 each (Adults and Children), or for $4 at the door on the day of the event. It’s going to be a fun family-friendly event, appropriate for children 4 and up (but feel free to bring along a younger child if you think they’ll be able to sit for a 40-minute show).

We’re going WILD during the March Break. What will YOU be doing?
