What’s happening at the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Just in time for Halloween is Stephen King’s ‘The Institute’—a story of kids facing unspeakable evil, but this time in American’s current political climate.

The natural science of a trees life is explored in the brightly illustrated ‘The Magic and Mystery of Trees’ by Jen Green.
