At the Library for May 10th, 2016

Updated 2016/05/09

Moonshine earned its name by being produced at night, with only the shine of the moon to help would-be-distillers hide from law enforcement during prohibition. Today, home brewing is rapidly growing cottage industry. Steve Coomes ‘The Home Distiller’s Guide to Spirits’ is an ideal introduction for beginners, including easy-to-follow advice and directions on bottling, canning, and numerous recipes.

‘A Blanket of Butterflies’ is Richard Van Camp’s latest graphic novel aimed at teen readers.

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 Swimming!

We have partnered with the Cranbrook Garden Club to create a new collection of seeds, available at no charge. Now you can check out a packet of seeds, plant them, harvest the next generation of seeds, and return them so other people can check them out. Don’t forget the Library also has countless gardening books, magazines and even DVDs.
