At the Library for May 12 2015

Updated 2015/05/11

In ‘The Right to be Cold,’ Sheila Watt-Cloutier charts her life from an abusive childhood full of obstacles to becoming one of the most influential and decorated environmental, cultural, and human rights advocates in the world.

Jason Reynold’s ‘The Boy in the Black Suit’ tells the story of a 15-year-old boy who, after losing both parents, is able to deal with his crushing grief by working at a funeral home. This is one of the most talked about Young Adult novels of the year.

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 Gardening!

The Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library are asking for donations for their upcoming garage sale.  Storage space is quite limited so donations can only be accepted on Friday, June 12th , the day  before the sale itself.   In particular, household items such as pots, pans, tools, toys, jewelry, pictures, linens, lamps and gardening items are much appreciated, but the Friends will take whatever else you have except for large furniture.   Please bring items to the Manual Training School from 9 am to 5 pm.

Now is the time to declutter your home.  Don’t forget, clutter can be a source of stress, so purging can be good for your mental well-being.

The Garage Sale will be held Sat., June 13th from 9 am to 2 pm in the Manual Training Center adjacent to the Library.  Come on out and you’ll be sure to find hidden treasurers at great prices! 100 percent of the proceeds go to enhance the Library.

Our new website is almost ready! There are a few more finishing touches to make before its official launch, but you can take a sneak peak now at

There is much more than this happening at the Library. Please check out our Facebook pages for more information and updates.

On display this month are hand-crafted models, posters, and original news clippings celebrating the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day (May 9th, 2015). Assembled by Hans Dekkers, this is one of our most extraordinary and momentous displays.

Please note the library will be closed Monday, May 18th for Victoria Day.
