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 September are:

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:

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

We look forward to seeing everyone again.

Storytimes are also posted everyday 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:  at:  www.cranbrookpubliclibrary.ca
