What’s happening at the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

In ‘Touched by the Sun’ singer Carly Simon explains how a brief meeting led to a life-long friendship with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Geronimo Stilton must once again travel to the Kingdom of Fantasy and rescue five princes in his latest adventure ‘The Island of Dragons.’

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 Baking! 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.

FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food as payment for overdue fines. One item will be worth one dollar of fines. Any canned or boxed non-perishable food items will be accepted. All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those annoying overdue fines while helping others in need.
