At the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

In ‘Beau Dick,’ Justin Barski examines eighty works by one of our country’s finest artists in Kwakwaka’wakw tradition.

Anna Humphrey’s ‘Megabat” is the humorous tale of two unlikely friends, a young boy and a bat, and how they bond over jellyrolls.

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 Snow. Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.

FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food as payment for overdue fines (please, no out of date food, no condiments, or food in glass containers). One item will be worth one dollar of fines. All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those pesky overdue fines while helping others in need.

Our website with all kinds of great information and links can be found at: www.cranbrookpubliclibrary.ca

Another great way to support our Endowment Fund is to purchase one of our Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies 2019 Wall Calendars. The full colour calendars feature brilliant local photography, and a chance to win prizes every single day of 2019. Calendars are $10.00 each, and make a great gift.

On display this month is the amazing holiday display by Kathleen Simon.
