What’s Happening At The Cranbrook Library

Mike Selby

If Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’ took place in South Africa, it would resemble Deon Meyer’s latest thriller, ‘Fever.’

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

Come to the Giant Garage Sale of the Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library at the Manual Training School located next to the Library. The times are 9 am to 2 pm on Sat. May 4th. Come and find those hidden treasures. Your unneeded items can be donated for this sale on Friday, May 3rd from 9 am to 4 pm in the Manual Training School. We accept dishes, lamps, bikes, toys, tools, clothing, jewels, collectibles, ornaments, gardening containers, etc. However because of space limitations, we can’t accept large furniture or computers. For further information call Michele at 250-426-4063.

All proceeds from this sale will be used for programs and supplies at the Cranbrook Public Library.

Please note the Library will be closed over the Easter holiday weekend.
