At the Library for December 24th, 2019

Updated 2019/12/24



Lee Child explores the legacy of fictional heroes and how they impact the modern world in his first work of nonfiction titled ‘The Hero.’


‘Bethany Blair and the Bugs in Her Hair’ and ‘The Tiny Tings Timothy Saw’ are two new brightly illustrated and delightful children’s books by Cranbrook’s Ariadne Appletree.


The Library will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day. We will also be closing at 3 pm on Christmas and New Year’s Eve.


All storytimes are on hiatus until the first week of January 8th, 2020.


The Library now has home safety detectors for checkout. We have five Thermal Imaging Cameras (they connect to your phone) available for check out. They will show hot and cold spots in your home, and come with instructions how to make your home more energy efficient.


We also have two Radon Detector Kits also available. These devices will detect any radon gas coming into homes, with also instructions on what to do should radon be detected.


FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food as payment for overdue fines. One item will be worth one dollar of fines. Any canned or boxed non-perishable food items will be accepted. All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those annoying overdue fines while helping others in need.


Database of the month: Auto Repair Source–Powered by the automotive experts at MOTOR, Auto Repair Source provides the most accurate, authoritative and up-to-date service and repair information for thousands of domestic and imported vehicles.

Please not that as of January 1st, 2020, the Library will become plastic bag free. We will no longer be handing them out for patrons to carry items in; nor will we be accepting any donations of them.



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:
