At the Library for August 30, 2016

Updated 2016/08/29

Weyman Chan explores the experience of growing up in Canada as an ethnic outsider in his latest book of poems ‘Human Tissue.’

100 epic facts and feats about our country are highlighted for younger readers in Elizabeth MacLeod’s ‘Colossal Canada.’

Huge thanks to all those who participated in the biggest and best Summer Reading Club the Library has ever had. A record 581 kids participated, with another record 219 earning medals. Congratulations to all those avid readers out there!

Storytime will resume in September.

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
