At the Library for September 01, 2015

Updated 2015/08/31

From growing up in dire poverty in the Depression, developing a love of jazz music, his involvement in the modernization of the Canadian agriculture industry and his entry into federal politics, local author Alan Coulter paints a fascinating portrait of Canadian life in his memoir ‘As Time Goes By.’

Steve Parker explains to younger readers what goes on inside an animal’s body in ‘Animals Uncovered.’

It went by fast, but the Summer Reading Club has come to an end. Over 600 kids participated, making it our biggest summer yet. If you have not yet picked up your certificate or medals, they are being held for you at the front desk. Congratulations to everyone who participated this summer!

Storytime will resume on September 16th.

The Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library and the Sunrise Rotary Club volunteers are working industriously to get everything ready for the Annual Fall Book Sale. This event will be held at the Ktunaxa Nation Gym from Wed. Sept. 30 to Sunday, Oct. 4th.

There is still time to bring in your donations for this sale. Items must be in good condition. Please bring books, DVDs, CDs, videos and books on tape to the front circulation desk in the Library. At this time we can’t accept encyclopedia sets or National Geographic Magazines. However, we especially appreciate pocket books. For further information please call Ursula Boy at 250-426-4707.
