At the Library

By Mike Selby

Long-time Cranbrook teacher Jack Sandberg has published his first book—a brightly illustrated and lyrical Christmas story titled ‘Ruby the Hummingbird.’

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11 a.m., 1:15 p.m.; Family Story Time is Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.; and Toddler Story Time is 10 and 11 a.m. Both will be all about Messy!  Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 a.m.
