At the Library
By Mike Selby
Cranbrook Public Library
Lawrence Hill’s ‘The Illegal’ tells the timely story of undocumented refugees struggling to survive in a nation that does not want them.
‘Finding Audrey’ is the hilarious young adult novel about an ordinary girl with not so ordinary problems, written by Sophie Kinsella.
Preschool Story Time is Wednesday at 11 a.m., 1:15 p.m., & 6:30 p.m., and Toddler Story Time is 10 and 11 a.m. Both will be all about the letter O!
From the Friends of the Library: “To all the people that supported our Annual Book Sale thank you, thank you, thank you! We raised over $ 11,000 to be split between the Sunrise Rotary and the Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library. Without your help this could not have been done. Thanks to the volunteers, the book donations, and the purchase of books. All of this is greatly appreciated by the many library users. Our combined effort is making our library the best place to enjoy programs, find knowledge or simply relax with a good book.”
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 began Sunday, October 11 from 3 to 4 p.m. at the library. To register, please contact Jason at 250-317-4927.
Please note there has been a programming change for our upcoming 45 Books in 45 Minutes. It is still taking place on Thursday, October 29 from 6:30 p.m. in the Manual Training School at the Cranbrook Public Library – but (due to lack of reviewers) there will no longer be any reviews. Instead, both Jim Cameron and Keith Powell will do a joint book presentation. Don’t miss this chance to hear from two of Cranbrook’s best authors.
Sharron Schornagel’s beautifully detailed and hand-painted works of pottery are currently on display.
Our new website is up and running at: www.cranbrookpubliclibrary.ca.
