At the Library for June 2nd, 2015

Updated 2015/06/01

Paul Taylor charts the evolution of life on earth, beginning with the Burgess Shale all the way to our own ancestors in his latest book ‘A History of Life in 100 Fossils.’

Elise Primavera’s ‘Ms Rapscott’s Girls’ is a quirky and fun story about a headmistress who encourages her students to “get lost on purpose.”

Preschool Story Time & Toddler Story Time are both on hiatus until the fall. The Summer Reading Club will be underway soon.

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 up and running 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 the fantastic oil paintings of Bob Wardle.
