Spend Those Bucks!

It’s our final Book Bucks Spending Week of the summer! Drop by the library anytime this week to spend the last of your Teen Book Bucks. We’ll have the window filled with tons of great items worth one Book Buck all the way up to Thirteen Book Bucks!

Your Book Bucks are only good this year—so don’t forget to drop by often! When we’re done, we’re done.

The Gold Card….Maple Edition

It’s our Library Lemonade Stand Kick-Off event today, and that means you’ll be able to fill out a ballot between now and July 8th for a chance to win one of SIX Carleton Place Public Library Gold Cards!

We’ll draw for the Gold Cards on Monday, July 10th—two for children, two for teens, and two for adults, so make sure to fill out a ballot for every member of your family to give yourself more chances to win. The card will only be valid for the person who wins it, is non-transferable, and lasts for 150 days. During those 150 days, the winners will not be charged any fines…a very special allowance in honour of this year’s Canada 150 celebrations!

And while you’re here, sign up for one of our great summer reading programs or events. We’ve got lots going on, and this is going to be an extra special year.

Don’t forget, the library is only open tomorrow, and then we’re closed for a few days to celebrate. Make sure to drop in to get all of your items for the long weekend!

See you at the lemonade stand!

Library Lemonade Stand Kick-Off for Summer Reading!

Tomorrow is our Library Lemonade Stand Summer Reading Kick-Off!  Join us on the front steps of the library from 1:30 – 3:30pm (rain or shine), for a glass of lemonade, and lots of fun!  You can also pick up all of your registration kits for the TD Summer Reading Club, for Adult Summer Reading, and our Teen Book Buck Bingo cards. Plus, our library will be all decked out for summer. Don’t be surprised if you see a fun character or two.

You’ll also be able to fill out a ballot starting tomorrow for one of our very special Library Gold Cards. Win one of these, and you won’t have any library fines for 150 days…that’s almost until the end of November! Exciting, right?

It’s going to be a busy day, as the library will be closed for the holiday weekend, so drop in sometime Thursday or Friday to pick up books, DVDs, museum passes and more. We’re kicking off with lots of great things!

Happy Canada 150!
