Downtown Carleton Place is gearing up for another fun event, and this time, it’s entirely for women! Ladies’ Night Out takes place this Thursday, November 17th from 1-8pm all across Carleton Place. Start your Christmas shopping early, and have a lot of fun while doing it!
Grab your friends and visit local stores for fun things like taste-testings, demonstrations, and PRIZES! Yes, there are going to be great prizes, all from local businesses. And we’re participating this year, so make sure to drop by the library between 5-8pm for one of the great makeup demonstrations by the lovely Christina Duplessis!
It’s going to be a fun day in Carleton Place!
Have you filled out our library survey? If you visit the Carleton Place Public Library on a regular basis, or even if you only drop by now and then, we’d like you to let us know how we can improve our services, or what you think we’re doing right.
Take a couple of minutes to fill out this survey, and you might win a Chapters gift card!
If you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend, the Carleton Place BIA is hosting its 9th Annual Bunny Run!
While we’re not taking part, this is a super fun event for kids. Drop by the website to see where all of the fun takes place, then get your kids to Bridge Street on Saturday morning to chase down those Easter treats!
This is the second sneak-peek into our Fall programming…..and it’s all about having fun!
Tuesday nights just got a little brighter, with our family-friendly “Board Game Night” at the library. Drop in alternating Tuesdays this fall, starting September 22nd from 5-8pm to join in a game, start a new one, or just to watch. Where else could you have so much fun for free?
We’ll provide the games, so pop the kids into their pajamas and drop by to play a quick game before bed. No kids, but still like a good game of Monopoly? Bring some friends, or come alone….we’re sure to have others who will want to play a friendly game or two.
Our fall calendar will be available soon, so drop by to pick one up. It’s going to be all kinds of fun this fall at the library!
This is it…the final week for our wonderful summer students, Sarah and Erica. We’re sad to see them go, but wish them all the best in the upcoming year!
Thank you for a WONDERFUL summer! We couldn’t have done it without either of you!
One of the exciting new programs coming up this fall involves colouring….but it’s not for kids! “Colour Yourself Calm” is going to be a regular, relaxing evening for adults. Mark your calendars now!
Join us the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm starting September 23rd for 90 minutes of zen colouring. We’ll provide the designs, markers, and more…all you need to do is show up.
If you could use a regular night out, why not bring a friend (or two), and colour with us. It’s not just for kids anymore!
No registration required….see you in September!
We’re starting a new series for the summer called “Yalp’s Friday Round Up!”. Yalp is our TD Summer Reading Club mascot this summer, and he’s up to lots of fun this summer…visiting with our young patrons, hanging out at the library, and much more. Hopefully, he’ll give us some insight into how much fun everyone is having at the library this summer.
We had Minion Madness, Marvelous Music and Crazy Colours this week. Everyone had fun, including Yalp! We had storytime, toddlers, young writers, adult writers, young readers, and today, we’re looking forward to French Storytime and an afternoon of Legos! Could our week be more fun?
Yalp heard LOTS of great things this week, including:
- One of our young friends loved spending time with Yalp so much, it was difficult to bring him back to the library at the end of the week. Thankfully, he’ll be able to visit her again later this summer! (They went biking together, and he can’t wait to do it again!)
- A young reader taking part in our summer literacy tutoring program came up with a great game that allowed him to find letters in the library that he was working on.
- Our group of teen writers didn’t want to leave after their hour was up!
- Children in the Crazy Colours program were laughing so hard during one of their games, it could be heard throughout the library
- A gentleman visiting from Carleton Place enjoyed being able to walk in off the street to use the public computers for free. It turns out he was a former Parliamentary Librarian!
I’m sure next week will be even more exciting! Don’t forget, we still have tickets for the Magic Show on Thursday, July 30th. Drop in now to get them for $3 before they’re gone!
