Tickets are now on sale for the Cranbrook Public Library 90th Anniversary Gala.

Don’t miss the event of the 20th Century, held in the 21st Century. Step back into the Roaring ‘20s – an age of dramatic social, cultural and political change and innovation.

“It’s the decade of speakeasies, flapper dresses, the Harlem Renaissance, the Hollywood boom, jazz music and the most notorious gangsters in history – it was also the beginning of the Cranbrook Public Library,” says Ursula Brigl, Chief Librarian, Cranbrook Public Library. “Join us to celebrate this moment in time with a high-style roaring ‘20s dinner and dance. It will be an evening of glitz and glamour, classic cocktails and fantastic food. You’ll also have the chance to try your luck with a wine pull and silent auction.”

The Cranbrook Public Library 90th Anniversary Gala, sponsored by Assiniboine Environmental Ltd., media sponsor Summit 107, is being held in support of the Cranbrook Public Library endowment fund, held by the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation.
