What a book sale the Friends of the Library and the Sunrise Rotary had last month! The public support for the event was terrific, whether donating books or buying them. The library wishes to thank all the sponsors: Selkirk Signs, SE Disposal, the City of Cranbrook, Tembec and all news media. The proceeds from this sale were split equally between the Friends and the Sunrise Rotary Club. The Sunrise will use their portion for student scholarships and to paint the Railway Museum locomotive opposite the Arches. The Friends will purchase new reading materials for the library.
