At the Library for September 22, 2015

Updated 2015/09/21

In ‘Children of the Broken Treaty,’ Charlie Angus looks at the amazing yet short life of Shannen Koostachin—a young Cree woman who led the largest human rights movement in Canadian history.

Gabby Duran is recruited by a secret agency to babysit a group of aliens in ‘Gabby Duran and the Unsittables.’

Storytime is back! 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 Friends!

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.

45 in 45 returns! 45 Books in 45 Minutes is a fun, frenetic event where each reviewer gets exactly 1 minute to review a favorite book. The timing is absolute. If the reviewer tries to talk longer they should expect to get subjected to good-natured heckling by the audience. By the end of the evening all participants will leave with a list of 45 titles to read during the winter.

45 Books in 45 Minutes takes place on Thursday, October 29th from 6:30 pm in the Manual Training School at the Cranbrook Public Library. Both local authors Keith Powell and Jim Cameron will be discussing their newly published books. Reviewers are needed—so if you are interested in reviewing please fill out the form available at the Library’s front desk. There is a draw for two gift certificates for those who review. We hope you will be part of this enjoyable, entertaining and exhilarating book reviewing event.
