At the Library

By Mike Selby

Cranbrook Public Library

Angela Crocker’s ‘Digital Legacy Plan’ illustrated the best practices for online memorials, expressing grief via social media, and digital etiquette in death.

A teen slacker finds video game heaven only to be frustrated by nosy parents, demanding friends and an unwelcome beaver in Gordon Korman’s ‘Level 13.’

StoryTime and Baby LapTime are both on hiatus until September.

The Summer Reading Club Closing Ceremonies will be on Tuesday, August 20 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and on Wednesday, August 21 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Please register for one of these times (don’t worry if you cannot make it—we will hold your medal and certificate for you). Congratulations to all who participated this summer! We had another record turnout with a whopping 708 summer readers–Wow!

Our website has all kinds of great information and links.
