At the Library for November 8th, 2106

Updated 2016/11/07

 

We are pleased to announce the availability of our updated digital magazine service Zinio for Libraries.

Zinio features full-color, digital editions for instant desktop reading, mobile streaming, and mobile-app download. Patrons are able to select both new and back issues, adding them to personal reading libraries with no holds, no checkout periods, and no limits to the number of magazines checked out and downloaded. And with personal notifications for their favorite magazines, patrons never miss an issue!

For crystal clear instructions on how to access Zinio, simply go to our website: http://www.cranbrookpubliclibrary.ca/explore/using-the-library/how-to/zinio/

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 Robots!

 

New this fall is Baby Laptime on Fridays at 1 pm. 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.

Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library Travelogue with Gebhard and Sabine Pfeiffer will be on Nov. 9th at 7 pm. Come for a tour of Cape Town, South Africa and a self-drive tour through Namibia. Highlights: Tour of the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town, & a walk on the top of Table Mountain. College of the Rockies, Lecture Theatre. Admission by donation.

 

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.

 

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

 

On display this month is Frank Eimer’s absolutely amazing Remembrance Day display.
