The Summer Reading Club is over, with the closing ceremonies being held this week. We had a record 602 kids registered this year, with 250 reading logs completed. This is outstanding, and everyone should be extremely proud of themselves. Our teen reading club had 45 members this year, another large number for Cranbrook. Thanks to everyone who participated this year.


Storytime will be resuming in the fall.
