At the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Katy Butler examines the final stage common to everyone in her latest book ‘The Art of Dying Well.’

Raj Haldar explains why the words like Knight, Gnat, and Aisle seemingly ignore the first letter when pronounced in his brightly illustrated picture book ‘P is for Pterodactyl.’

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10 and 11 am. Both will be all about kings and queens! Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.

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

We also have a new JUST FOR TEENS section on our website, located here:

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:
