At the Library

By Mike Selby

Cranbrook Public Library

While the Cranbrook Public Library building itself remains closed, please take advantage of our online offerings, as well as our no-contact curbside takeout. The Library Board and staff are working hard with the city and Interior Health to restore services in the safest way possible.

You can now take out up to 25 items. How to place holds for takeout can be found here.

Storytimes and kid’s crafts are posted every day at 11:30 a.m. on our Facebook page.

Our website has all kinds of up-to-date COVID-19 information, as well as numerous links to ebooks and audio, streaming movies, educational opportunities, and more. Flip through your favourite magazine, learn a new skill, exercise at home and get homework help.

We are pleased to offer free Wi-Fi all around the outside of the building. Please use it from the safety of your vehicle, and remember to practice social distancing.

The Summer Reading Club will be happening this year, but it will certainly look different. Please stay tuned to this column for updates, or check on our website or Facebook page.

We miss you and we definitely hear you. Thank-you to everyone for their patience and kindness during these times.
