Carleton Place is Fantastic!

It’s the day before the Bridge Street Bazaar here in Carleton Place, and we’re excited. If you’re not familiar with the event, the entire length of Bridge Street will be closed from 9am – 4pm Saturday, August 3rd, so that everyone can walk downtown and visit all the great tables, stores and special shows. There will be over 100 vendors with their goods on display and lots to see and do. Come hungry, because there are always lots of fun places to eat. Have a slice of pizza, some of Mike’s fries, or even some Vietnamese food!  The possibilities are almost endless! Check out the link above to see everything that will be happening, rain or shine!

We’re excited that this year, we’ve got a fun event happening during the bazaar.  You can drop in this week to pick up the information, or grab a handout when you park in the library parking lot Saturday morning. We’ll have a table set out and friendly people to answer your questions. What are we doing?  We’re asking you to “GO!” to some of our favourite spots in Carleton Place as part of the TD Summer Reading Club, and take a photo. That’s it!  And there will be PRIZES!!

GO!

All you need is a phone that can download the FOURSQUARE app.  Once you register, you can find CP Library and we’ll add you to our friends list. Then, just go to each of the places listed in our “GO! CARLETON PLACE!” list and use the hint to take a photo. If you have Facebook, upload it there and hashtag it as #cplibrary.  Or do the same on Instagram!  We’re excited to see how many people will participate.  It’s going to be fun, and you have until Friday, August 9th to finish the task in order to qualify for the prizes.

Just a reminder, the library will be closed on Monday, August 5th, for the long weekend. We’ll see you Tuesday!
