At the Library for April 18, 2017

Updated 2017/04/21




‘Stewart in My Rear: More Irish Trouble in Norther Canada’ continues the chronically ill-fated yet hilarious adventures of Martin Maguire. This is the 6th book in the series, with more sure to come. Written by Cranbrook’s Brendan Gillen, this book has some serious moments, but is still very, very funny. ‘Stewart in My Rear’ is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.


Helen Mason’s new book follows a five-year-old boy whose family is forced to flee Syria during the civl war. ‘A Refugee’s Journey from Syria’ explains to younger readers what the world is currently doing for refugees, and what can be done in one’s own community.


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 motorcycles & bicycles!


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.

Is your house and garage too full? Too many pots, pans, lamps, pictures, linens, tools, toys, jewelry, gardening supplies, etc.  The Friends of the Library have a solution. Clear out your clutter and bring it to the Manual Training School (adjacent to the Library) on Friday, April 28th from 1 pm to 6 pm.   Everything is welcome except large furniture. For further information call Louise at 778-517-1119.

A giant Garage Sale will be held on Sat. April 29th from 9 am to 3 pm in the Manual Training School. Come out and find those hidden treasurers!  All proceeds from this sale will be used for programs and services at the Cranbrook Public Library.


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.
