At the Library for September 13, 2016

Updated 2016/09/12

In ‘On Bowie’, Rob Sheffield explains how David Bowie “created art that not only pushed boundaries, but helped fans understand themselves and view the world from fantastic new perspectives.”

Blue Balliett tells an intriguing story about a group of elementary school kids solving a gallery’s problem with art theft in ‘Pieces & Puzzles.’

Storytime is back! 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 Friends!

New this fall is Baby Laptime on Fridays at 1 pm. It will be starting on Friday, Sept 23.
This program is for babies who are not yet walking so a specific age is not really set—best approximation is under 1 year of age. Since we do not have daycare for older siblings we ask that parents who have babies and children who are walking come to the toddler storytime instead of the baby laptime.
Preparations are underway by the Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library and the Sunrise Rotary Club for the Fall Book Sale. This event will be held at the Ktunaxa Nation Gym from Wednesday, Sept. 28th to Sunday, Oct. 2nd. There is still time to bring in your donation for this sale. Items must be in good condition. Please bring books, Dvds, Cds, videos and books on tape to the front circulation desk in the Library. At this time, we can’t accept encyclopedias or National Geographic magazines. However, we especially appreciate pocket books.

Artistic Connections for Teens tales place on Saturday, September 14th, 3:30 –6 p.m. in the Manual Training Room. Explore your creative side with local artist Taryn King as she instructs participants how to make fantastic 3-D geometric art. Snacks and materials will be provided. Cost is free.

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.

On display this month is the massive 1948 fire insurance map of Cranbrook, courtesy of the Columbia Basin Institute of Regional History. Accompanied by blown-up photographs, come see just how much has changed and how much has not in past 70 years.
