At the Library
By Mike Selby
Cranbrook Public Library
In ‘The Book of Speculation,’ Erika Swyler tells the story of a curse that has haunted a family of circus performers for generations, and a book that may hold the key to end it.
Preschool Story Time is Wednesday at 11 a.m., 1:15 p.m., and 6:30 p.m., and Toddler Story Time is 10 and 11 a.m. Both will be all about Food!
Tablet training has returned. Anyone interested in learning about basic tablet usage, including Internet, email, e-books, and accessing resources and invited to attend any of the upcoming free classes. Sessions begin this Sunday, October 11 from 3 to 4 p.m. at the library. To register, please contact Jason at 250-317-4927.
45 in 45 returns! 45 Books in 45 Minutes is a fun, frenetic event where each reviewer gets exactly 1 minute to review a favourite book. The timing is absolute. If the reviewer tries to talk longer they should expect to get subjected to good-natured heckling by the audience. By the end of the evening all participants will leave with a list of 45 titles to read during the winter.
45 Books in 45 Minutes takes place on Thursday, October 29 from 6:30 p.m. in the Manual Training School at the Cranbrook Public Library. Both local authors Keith Powell and Jim Cameron will be discussing their newly published books. Reviewers are needed—so if you are interested in reviewing please fill out the form available at the library’s front desk. There is a draw for two gift certificates for those who review. We hope you will be part of this enjoyable, entertaining and exhilarating book reviewing event.
Sharron Schornagel’s beautifully detailed and hand-painted works of pottery are currently on display.
