At the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Fascism drives members of Italian nobility to relocate in Vernon, BC, in Laisha Rosnau’s new novel ‘Little Fortress.’

In ‘Eek, You Reek,” author Jane Yolen has written a selection of poems all about animals that stink.

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 Monsters! 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.
