At the Library
By Mike Selby
Cranbrook Public Library
The good news is George R. R. Martin has finally published a new novel. The bad news is it is NOT the long awaited conclusion to his Fire & Ice Series (aka Game of Thrones). ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ takes place in the same setting, but a full century earlier.
Simon Winchester explains to young readers not only the scientific causes of natural disasters, but also what their impact has on populations that experience them in ‘When the Earth Shakes.’
Storytime is back! Preschool Story Time is this 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 Ladybugs!
Don’t forget to check out the Friends’ cart located in front of the Librarians office. It is chock full of craft and art books and all for sale at $2 each.
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.
