At the Library for August 16, 2016

Updated 2016/08/15

A mysterious benefactor offers two strangers half-a-million dollars if they can spend two hours together every week for a whole year in Kemper Donovan’s ‘The Decent Proposal’.

Two teens try to save a rhinoceros calf from poachers in Lauren St. John’s ‘Operation Rhino.’

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

The summer is flying by, which means the Summer Reading Club Closing Ceremonies are fast approaching! Please pre-register for the event on Tuesday, August 23rd at 1:00pm or on Wednesday, August 24th at 1:00pm.
We will have pizza, cake and tons of prizes! Medals and certificates will be awarded to those who have completed a reading log! The last day to hand in reading logs and collect stickers and prizes is August 20th. Happy reading!
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.

On display this month is a preview of the 39th annual Kootenay Country Fair, featuring a brilliant cross-section of all the categories and upcoming exhibits. For more information, please visit their website at
