Ice Cream!

It’s hot. Let’s face it…summer isn’t ending anytime soon. But if you’re looking for a few fun August things to beat the heat, the latest issue of Good Housekeeping magazine has some great recipes for making your own ice cream. Doesn’t that sound yummy?

You can access all of the recipes, and the rest of the magazine, from our website on Flipster. Just drop by our website, and click on the Good Housekeeping cover as you see it scroll by the bottom of the screen. You can read the entire magazine on your computer, phone or tablet. Now that’s cool!


Keeping up with the Librarians

Honestly, one of the funniest things we’ve seen in a long time. Version one….a Hollywood Reporter cover with the Kardashians. The Invercargill City Librarians did their own take on this back in the fall. Totally unplanned, right?

Only Two More Days…

These are the last two days we’re open before Christmas. Don’t forget to ask for your PIN so that you can renew items, place holds, or download anything you might need over the holidays. It’s easy, and you’ll feel like the library is open 24/7.

Merry Christmas!

Winter Programs!

Our Winter Program schedule has just gone out…and we have plenty of interesting things to do as the weather gets colder! You can drop in and pick up your own copy, or download and print this version to put by your calendar. Most of the events require registration, unless indicated, so make sure to follow the registration dates so that you don’t miss out. We’re going to be busy!


Local Poet Makes the Long List

A local writer and longtime patron, Claudia Coutu Radmore, made the long list for the 2017 CBC Poetry Prize. While she didn’t win the overall prize, we’re so thrilled for her to have been recognized for her incredible talent.

You can find out a bit more about Radmore and her poem right here.

And coming in 2018, a super-secret exciting project for the Carleton Place Public Library that we hope will make you even more curious about local authors!! Stay tuned for more.

Winter Programs

We’re getting ready to make the transition from Fall programming into Winter programming. The schedule isn’t quite ready yet, but for those of you wondering what’s going to be offered in the new year, we’re excited about many great new programs. We’ve got craft clubs, book clubs, movies, drop-ins, teen programs, children’s programs, and plenty more. If you thought the library was busy this fall, get ready for 2018!
