We have partnered with the Cranbrook Garden Club to create a new collection of seeds, available at no charge. Now you can check out a packet of seeds, plant them, harvest the next generation of seeds, and return them so other people can check them out. Don’t forget the library also has countless gardening books, magazines and even DVDs.
Our website is up and running at: www.cranbrookpubliclibrary.ca
On display this month is a selection of antiques and local authors to help celebrate Same Steele Days.
