At the Library
Cranbrook Public Library
Jim Cameron follows up his widely popular ‘Cranbrook Then and Now’ with a new second volume. As before, Cameron’s ability to link our past with the present is ingenious and his writing remains absorbing as always.
The wind still blows through the willows with Kij Johnson’s ‘The Riverbank’—a direct sequel to Kenneth Grahame’s beloved ‘The Wind in the Willows.’ Along with Toad, Badger, and Mole, Johnson has added female animals as well.
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 “Christmas”. Baby Laptime Thursday at 10 a.m.
Please note the library will be closed this Saturday, December 23 through to Monday, December 26, and again the library will be closed at 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 31, and will reopen on Monday, January 2 for regular hours. We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.
FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food as payment for overdue fines. One item will be worth one dollar of fines. Any canned or boxed non-perishable food items will be accepted. All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those pesky overdue fines while helping others in need.
The Cranbrook Public Library Endowment Fund gives people an opportunity to create a meaningful legacy, to build a strong foundation in the present for the future of the Library. For more information about how you can contribute, please phone us at 250-426-4063 Ext: 1001, or visit this link.
On display this month is the warm and festive Christmas display by Kathy Simon.
