At the Library for March 5th, 2019

Updated 2019/03/05

Markus Torgeby could break running records in training, yet always lost during competitions. To figure out why, he spent four years living in the Swedish woods; living in a tent while running as much as he could. His book ‘The Runner’ tells of this remarkable and unusual journey of one person’s quest to find themselves.

Roz the Robot finds herself stranded on an island with no memory of how she got there in Peter Brown’s ‘The Wild Robot.’

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 Silly! Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.

Come and discover your spring reading at the Friends of the Library’s “Spring Fling Book Sale”. It will be at the Manual Training School adjacent to the Library. Friday March 29th from 5 pm to 7 pm is for Friends’ members. Saturday, March 30th from 9 am to 4 pm everyone is welcome.
There are books, DVDs, CDs, & audiobooks for all ages and interests. Proceeds from this sale will be used to support programs and services of the Cranbrook Public Library.
