At the Library

By Mike Selby

Cranbrook Public Library

In ‘Run The World,’ Becky Wade literally runs through nine countries to explore the diverse running cultures of the world, visiting 72 different host families while logging in an impressive 3,500 miles of running.

‘Do You Really Want to Create A Mudslide’ is a brightly illustrated book that has two young children making a hill of mud, all the while learning about the science behind erosion, wind, and actual mudslides.

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Toddler Story Time is 10 and 11 a.m. Both will be all about Valentines!

New this year is Baby Laptime on Fridays at 1 p.m. This program is for babies who are not yet walking so a specific age is not really set—best approximation is under 1 year of age. Since we do not have daycare for older siblings we ask that parents who have babies and children who are walking come to the toddler storytime instead of the baby laptime.

Iceland Travelogue! Watch a stimulating photographic multi-media travelogue presentation on Iceland’s most popular trail “The Laugaveur Trail”. The photography and storytelling by Janice Strong and Jamie Levine will make you want to go there. Watch their presentation of trekking from Landmannalauguar to Thorsmork, as they hiked the starkly unique wilderness of Iceland’s high country between glaciers and dramatic volcanic geology.
