Goodies for Grown Ups!

adultreadingYes, we’re doing it again! Adult Summer Reading at the Carleton Place Public Library!

We’re starting now. All you need to do is pick up your Goodies for Grown Ups kit at the front desk. Each kits has fun things to get you started, and make your summer reading count.

You don’t have to read specific books or some to the library on a specific day…..this is reading at your own pace, and for your own enjoyment!

On your next visit, let us know you’re taking part, and we’ll give you a fun shot at winning a prize.  We’ll make our draws at the end of July, and one at the end of August for fun prizes to be announced soon! The more you visit the library, the more chances you’ll have to win.

If you have any questions, please drop by the library or give us a call. We’re looking forward to getting everyone reading this summer!

Have You Been Reading?

We’ve been having a great time at the library this summer, and what’s been most exciting is seeing our adult readers win prizes! As part of our Goodies for Grown Ups program, participants read whatever books they like and then come back and ask for their “Lucky Library Lotto” card! We’ve had TONS of lucky winners so far. Have you been one?

And it isn’t over yet!  We still have lots of great prizes to be given away, so if you’re a part of our program, keep reading!  And don’t forget to tell us you’re part of the program….we don’t always remember, and we want to give you your card.

Happy Reading!
