The Cranbrook Public Library can open its doors primarily because of the support it receives from the City of Cranbrook, Regional District of East Kootenay and Province of BC, which in turn receive funds from taxpayers. The Library prepares a number of reports each year to show how these funds were spent to provide library services in our community.
