Programs

APRIL BREAK ACTIVITIES!

From April 12 – 16, we’ll be “Exploring Your Space” for our April Break events! Download the calendar above, or pick up your kit at the Station prior to the start of the week so that you don’t miss out on any of the fun. You can ask for one curbside!

We’ll have daily online activities on our Facebook page, including Storytime, a daily Virtual Escape Room, special Silly Science programming, and some extra special online programs by our friend Haiden who created these for us during her stay with us in March for her Queens University education placement.

Even thought we’re only open for curbside pickup, you’ll also be able to ask for a fun Seed Kit, and craft kits for children, teens and adults while supplies last. While you’re there, make sure to ask for one of our “Follow the Story” maps to take part in our very special event taking place all week long in Downtown Carleton Place! Find out what Beaver decides to get as a gift when he realizes it is the Carleton Place Public Library’s 175th Anniversary! Ten local businesses will have a portion of the story posted in their front windows from April 12 – 16, and you’ll find yourself doing lots of silly, fun things to get to the next stop!
