At the Library

By Mike Selby

Cranbrook Public Library

Exciting news! The Cranbrook Public Library is now open (with some restrictions, reduced services and reduced hours.) We encourage patrons to limit their visits to 30 minutes. We also have a maximum number of patrons allowed in the building at one time, so you may be asked to wait.

Library hours for July and August will be:

10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday;

2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

Library Takeout curbside pick-up will be available:

3:20 to 5:20 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday;

10:20 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. on Wednesday;

9:40 a.m. to 5:20 p.m. on Saturday.

We look forward to seeing everyone again.

Please note the province has suspended interlibrary loans at this time.

Our 2020 Summer Reading Club has begun! Everything is different this year because of COVID-19. Although there will be no in-person programs or activities, there are still plenty of ways to be involved.

You can register online and track your reading progress using a virtual logbook.

You can also pick up a paper registration form and paper reading log at the Library.

Each week there will be virtual crafts and activities, as well as reading challenges and contests.

Watch our live programs on Facebook.  We will have new programs each week, like storytelling, puppet shows, craft ideas, STEAM projects… We even have our own Facebook page dedicated for nothing but the Summer Reading Club.

You can also win prizes each week!

Storytimes are also posted everyday at 11:30 a.m. on our Facebook page.

The Adult Summer Reading Club has also begun as well. Registration can be found here.

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.
