At the Library for September 29, 2015

Updated 2015/09/28

In ‘Open Heart, Open Mind,’ Clara Hughes—one of Canada’s most decorated Olympic athletes—tells of her lifelong struggle with depression.

An awkward high-school student and a terminally ill girl become unlikely friends in the humorous yet warm ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’—the latest novel by Jesse Andrews.

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 Libraries & Books!

The Friends of the Library & the Sunrise Rotary Club’s Annual Fall Book Sale runs from Wed. Sept. 30th through to Sunday, Oct. 4th in the Ktunaxa Gym opposite the Cranbrook Public Library
The first day (Wed) is for members only however an individual $10 membership to the Friends can be purchased at the door.

Doors open daily at 9:30 am. Wed, Friday and Saturday we are open until 5:00 pm. Thursday is open for late evening shopping until 9:00 pm. Sunday is the BAG SALE open from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm. Bring your Friends/Library bag and fill it for $5. Or purchase this bag here and fill it for $10. Only these bags can be used. It’s a great way to obtain lots of reading material at a fabulous price.

There’s a huge selection of books, videos, DVDs, & CDs for children, teens and adults…with newer release books that are sure to go fast.

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.
