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?

Fun for the Whole Family!

We’re selling tickets now for our fun March Break event at the Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium! Join us on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 10am for “Eccentric Adam”! He’s what’s known as a contemporary clown–no scary face makeup–and he’ll be entertaining us with tricks, jokes, juggling, and much more!  It’s going to be fun for the whole family!

Tickets are on sale now for $3 each at the library—that’s for children & adults. Babes in arms get in for free.  This show is probably best aimed at ages 4 and up, but you’re welcome to bring along anyone who might be able to sit through a 30 minute show. We’ll also be selling tickets at the door for $4 each, but get them early and save yourself a bit of money this March Break. We know you’ll need it!

If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at 257-2702 for more information. We can’t wait until March Break!

March Break at the Library!

1Just a few more days until March Break! Don’t forget, we have LOTS of fun things going on at the library all week, for all ages. Drop in, participate, read, pick up materials…we’re going to be busy!

Since it will be a VERY busy week, if you’re looking for Museum Passes (they’ll be in big demand), you can stop by our website to see what’s available. We’ll try to keep a running list of what we have when you drop in, but you can stay one step ahead by checking the website. Just click on this link, and scroll down to the bottom of the page to see availability. You can’t place holds on museum passes, so be patient. And if you take one out and use it, please bring it back as soon as you can so that others might take advantage of the savings. We know there will be a lot of people waiting!


March Break!

1Our March Break calendar is going out later this week, but we thought we’d give you a bit of a teaser.  We’ll have LOTS of fun programs going on each day, many of which will be drop ins and won’t require registration, and even a few online activities!

We’ll have calendars available to pick up at the library, we’ll post some here, and on our Facebook page and website. Feel free to download these online versions in full colour, drop in to register for that special event, or give us a call for more information. We’re gearing up for lots of excitement!

Stay tuned!

Extra Fun at the Library

MARCHWhile we won’t have a ferris wheel at the library this week (sorry to disappoint!), we do have lots of special events going on all week. You don’t have to be signed up for something to have a good time at the library, either, especially if you’re a kid!

What are all the extra things happening during March Break?

You can drop in anytime this week, and we have things to do. How about:

  • Playing a fun game of I Spy—there’s a new one each day!
  • Doodling on the moon (yes, we’re getting out the markers again)
  • A GIANT interactive Mr. Potato Head —it’s exactly what you think
  • Book Bundles—remember those from last year? They’re even more fun now!
  • A Library Lego Sculpture—drop in for books, get 3 LEGO pieces to put on the sculpture
  • A Teen Scavenger Hunt —a new one each day…with PRIZES!
  • Weird Words all over the place!
  • ….and plenty more

Can I sign up a younger child for a program that has an age range?

Sorry, we’re going to be fairly strict about ages during programs. But, you can always ask about being added to the waiting list. If a spot opens up, we’ll give you a call.

Then what can I do with a younger child when a sibling is attending a program?

Wander around the library and participate in one of the fun things I mentioned up above. Our I Spy events are some of the most popular things we do at the library for kids, and they’ll have a lot of fun. There is a new one each day, too. Or pick up a special Book Bundle…you won’t know what books are inside until you get home, but they’ll be good for the whole family.

A Teen Scavenger Hunt? Really? Isn’t that for kids?

Come on! Teens want to have fun, too! And this one is special, and requires them to keep their eyes open, and they don’t have to leave the library to do it. Plus, did we mention prizes??

Are the Drop-In Events going to be supervised?

Plan on staying with young children at our drop-in events. These will be largely unsupervised, but we’ll make sure to pop our heads in on occasion to keep the supplies organized and take a few photos.

Where can I find out what else is happening at the library during the March Break?

Right here! We posted about our events a few weeks ago. Most things require registration, so please call ahead or drop into the library to make sure there are still spaces in the program you want.

Happy March Break, everyone!  Can’t wait to see you at the library…….
