Thank you!

We’d like to share a BIG thank you with Andrea at Hamsa Yoga in Carleton Place for arranging a yoga session for kids at the library during the March Break. Amanda dropped by the library last Thursday morning, and did stretches, mindfulness, and much more with almost a dozen kids aged 7 – 12. We were thrilled!

And if your child didn’t get a chance to try yoga for free, maybe we’ll do this again next year. It was such a success!

March Break!

March Break is almost here! We’re expecting a very busy week of laughter, exploration, learning, relaxation, and relief that it’s finally here (and then over!).

A few things to remember….

  • most of our programs are drop ins…that means NO REGISTRATION! And, they’re open to all ages. The crafts and activities are scalable to both young children, and those who can do a little more.
  • We’ll have plenty to do if you just want to drop in outside of a program. There will be a daily I Spy, a fun ball pit for the littles, some wacky colouring pages, and much more. Feel free to stop in for a few minutes, or come for the afternoon.
  • Parents, we haven’t forgotten you. Make sure to pick up your parent relaxation kit early on. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
  • We’ll still have tickets for the magic show at the Town Hall on Wednesday morning at 10am. Come a few minutes early…and bring cash. Tickets are $3 each right now at the library, but they’ll be $4 each on the morning of the event.
  • Yes, you have to stay with your kids. Our policy states that children EIGHT years old and under must have a parent stay with them in the building when they come to a program. For older kids, we suggest making sure they know your cell phone number, and leave instructions as to how/where we could get in touch with you if we need to. It rarely happens, but sometimes, things happen.

And one quick addition….we’ll have a FRENCH element to some of the craft afternoon drop ins! Make sure to ask where the French table is when you drop in!

If you have any questions about any of the programs, please feel free to give us a call at 257-2702. We want to make this week as fun for you as it’ll be for the kids!

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!
