At the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

At the time of his death, Stieg Larsson (‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) was investigating the assassination of Sweden’s prime minister in 1986. ‘The Man Who Played with Fire’ is a look at these files, and just how close Larsson was to naming an assassin.

Miranda Paul uses colourful illustrations to tell the story of a soon-to-be big sister impatiently waiting for a baby brother or sister in ‘Nine Months: Before a Baby is Born.’

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm; Family Story Time is Wednesday at 6:30 pm; and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about Counting! Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.
