At the Library for March 21st, 2017

Updated 2017/03/20




Charles Campisi’s ‘Blue on Blue’ reveals how the New York City Police Internal Affairs stopped corrupt and law-breaking members of its own police department.


‘Mission to Pluto’ charts the spacecraft New Horizon—only the size of a piano–as it explores the space entity Pluto and the Kuiper ice belt.


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 Spring!


New this year 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.

Come to the Mini Book Sale of the Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library at the Manual Training School adjacent to the library. Friday, March 31st is for Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library MEMBERS ONLY from 5 pm to 7 pm. Saturday, April 1st EVERYONE is welcome from 9 am to 4 pm. Discover loads of new releases, gardening and other outdoor pursuits, fiction, mystery, children’s books and much more. Your book, DVD and CD donations are welcome anytime. Pocket books are especially appreciated.  Please bring donations to the Circulation desk in the Library. For info contact Marilyn at 250-489-6254.


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.
