At the Library for August 2nd, 2016

Updated 2016/07/31

70 years after the end of World War II, the era of Nazi hunting is finally coming to an end. Andrew Nagorski’s ‘The Nazi Hunters’ tells the full saga of how a small band of men and women relentlessly tracked down war criminals all over the world.

11-year old Kristen Kelly demonstrates how to do easy magic tricks with the help of her magician Dad in ‘Abracadabra: Fun Magic Tricks for Kids.’

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.

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.

Our website is up and running at: www.cranbrookpubliclibrary.ca
