At the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Adam Shoalts charts his solo journey across the Canadian Arctic in his latest book ‘Beyond the Trees.’

Valerie Boden’s ‘Sharks’ explores folktales and science in her latest book for young readers.

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 Dinosaurs! Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.

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.
