At the Library

By Mike Selby

Cranbrook Public Library

Ken McGoogan charts the Scots who chose to settle in Canada after being evicted from their ancestral homelands in his latest book ‘Flight of the Highlanders.’

Whatever young Polly writes in her new book comes to life—sometimes with dire consequences in Alice Kuiper’s brightly illustrated ‘Polly Diamond and the Magic Book.’

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 Rainbows and Weather! Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 a.m.
