At the Library for August 28th, 2018

Updated 2018/08/27

A young German woman hired to be Hitler’s food taster in his mountain retreat plots against him in V.S. Alexander’s ‘The Taster.’

A crow and a tree help out their human neighbours in Katherine Applegate’s ‘Wishtree.’

Congratulations on all our Summer Reading Club participants. 621 readers was a truly phenomenal summer, and our record for Cranbrook. If you somehow missed the closing ceremonies, your medal and certificate is still available to be picked up. Just ask at the front desk. Congratulations to everyone!

To help celebrate the 20th anniversary of ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,’ Overdrive will be making the eBook available for unlimited access from August 27th to September 10th, 2018. Just either go to our Library2Go link, https://bcpl.overdrive.com/ or through the Libby app https://meet.libbyapp.com/ and celebrate the magic.
