At the Library for March 28th, 2017

Updated 2017/03/27

 

 

 

Ann Brocklehurst’s ‘Dark Ambition’ explores just what made Dellen Millard—a young Canadian aviation heir—go on an Ontario murder spree.

 

A new edition of ‘Tarzan of the Apes’ will still captivate readers with the story of a baby who is raised by African apes after the death of his shipwrecked parents.  

 

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 Ducks!

 

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.

 

The Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library are hosting the Travelogue “Yellowstone – Volcanic Land of Searing Waters” by Dick Hicks, at the College of the Rockies in room 250 at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, April 11th.  Yellowstone National Park in September features images captured away from the asphalt and boardwalks, notably along the Continental Divide Trail into Shoshone Geyser Basin.  Admission is by donation and funds raised are used to support services and programs at the Cranbrook Public Library.
