At the Library for March 14th, 2017

Updated 2017/03/13

 

 

 

Fiction writer Neil Gaiman explores the origins and legacy of the Northern myths that he frequently used in his novels in ‘Norse Mythology.’

 

The brave pioneers of sports, technology, and human rights are features in Crispen Boyer’s ‘The Book of Heroes.’

 

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about frogs!

 

New this year is Baby Laptime on Fridays at 1 pm. 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.

Come to the Mini Book Sale of the Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library at the Manual Training School adjacent to the library. Friday, March 31st is for Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library MEMBERS ONLY from 5 pm to 7 pm. Saturday, April 1st EVERYONE is welcome from 9 am to 4 pm. Discover loads of new releases, gardening and other outdoor pursuits, fiction, mystery, children’s books and much more. Your book, DVD and CD donations are welcome anytime. Pocket books are especially appreciated.  Please bring donations to the Circulation desk in the Library. For info contact Marilyn at 250-489-6254.
