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.

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 Canadian Animals! Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.
