If you haven’t been using our new website, we think you should give it a try. It might look different from our old catalog, but it’s got lots of great new features. And one of the best is our ONLINE RESOURCES!
If you click on the tab on the left of the page that says, Online Resources, you’ll come to a new menu that allows you to explore the resources based on what you’re looking for. Try “Genealogy and History” if you’re looking for links to Ancestry.com library edition, the World History Collection, or Our Ontario. Or click on “Health and Wellness” if you would like an easy way to find information about a medical problem or health question, choosing Consumer Health Complete, a Multilingual Health Database, or even a Teen Health and Wellness link. It’s easy to search any of these databases, either from home or while you’re at the library. It’s a great resource that we’re proud to offer to our patrons.
One of the great “book” related links is called NoveList (or NoveList K-8 for the younger set). Click on that link and you’ll be brought to a fantastic search engine that will help you search for books by your favourite author, see what’s coming next in a series, and even get recommendations for authors who write in a similar style. No more wondering what to read next!
You can find all of these links at our online catalog. Take a few minutes to explore it. You might be surprised at what we have to offer!
Happy Family Day! The library will be closed today, so please keep all returns until tomorrow at 9am when the return box will go out. Don’t worry….no fines will be charged for today.
Enjoy your long weekend!
We’re going to be away at the Ontario Library Association Super Conference for a few days, so storytime and babytime are cancelled this week.
Don’t worry, you can still sign up for next week by calling 257-2702. We’ll be excited to get back at it. As usual, however, if the buses are cancelled due to poor weather conditions, we don’t run programs. Please listen to your local radio station for more details, or watch here on Facebook for a post.
See you next week!
Did you know that we carry a huge assortment of DVD’s? Not only do we have movies for children and families, but we now have a wide variety of TV series that you can borrow for a week at a time.
All you need is a library card! Don’t have one? It’s simple….drop in and we’ll get you sorted out. You could be watching your favourite series this weekend!
The library will be closed a few extra days over the holidays. Please make sure to drop in early to pick up more books, movies and audiobooks, or renew what you have out so that your books don’t become overdue. Don’t worry, we don’t charge fines for days we are closed. And please keep all returns for any of the days we are open, only.

Happy Holidays from the staff at the Carleton Place Public Library!
Have you noticed all of the great new signage at the library? We’re slowly beautifying the library…and making it easier for you to find things at the same time!
We have a Teen Zone, a Kid’s Corner, a new reference area sign, and some fantastic non-fiction Dewey signage.
If you’ve ever wondered what you might find down each aisle, now it’s crystal clear. Maybe you’ll even be tempted to look someplace you’ve never been!
