At the Library for December 18th, 2018

Updated 2018/12/17



Kim Brooks describes her experience about being convicted of a crime after leaving her child in her car when she ran into a store in ‘Small Animals.’


Jess Keating looks at the quokka, the pangolin, the dik-dik, and other of the world’s smallest and most adorable animals in her new book ‘Cute as an Axolotl.’


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 Christmas.  Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.


FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food as payment for overdue fines (please, no out of date food, no condiments, or food in glass containers). One item will be worth one dollar of fines.  All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those pesky overdue fines while helping others in need.


Our website with all kinds of great information and links can be found at:


The Cranbrook Public Library Endowment Fund gives people an opportunity to create a meaningful legacy, to build a strong foundation in the present for the future of the Library. For more information about how you can contribute, please phone us at 250-426-4063  Ext: 1001, or visit this link:


Another great way to support our Endowment Fund is to purchase one of our Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies 2019 Wall Calendars. The full colour calendars feature brilliant local photography, and a chance to win prizes every single day of 2019. Calendars are $10.00 each, and make a great gift.


On display this month is the amazing holiday display by Kathleen Simon.
