At the Library for July 26th, 2016

Updated 2016/07/25

Matti Friedman’s ‘Pumpkin Flowers’ is the harrowing story of a small unnamed war in Lebanon, which is now seen as the birth of today’s chaotic Middle East.

Jane Sutcliffe’s ‘Will’s Words’ is a brightly illustrated tour of Shakespeare’s love of words, his creation of new words, and how he changed the English language forever.

Storytime is on hiatus until September, but the Summer Reading Club is in full swing.

The 2016 Summer Reading Club theme is Book a Trip! Summer Reading Club is FREE for children and teens and registration is ongoing all summer. There are weekly programs, contests, prizes, movie nights, and much more. Please check our website, our Facebook page, or call us at 250-426-4063 for more information.

FREE one-on-one tech training session for those of you who want to enhance your current computing skills. We cover many topics including Basic Tablet usage, Basic Computer usage, Windows 10 training, Window 8 + 8.1 training, Window 7 training, Microsoft Suit training, Library E book training, and much more. To register, please contact the Library at (250) 426-4063, or sign up at the front desk.

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.

Please note the Library will be closed this Monday, August 1st for BC Day.
