What’s happening at the Cranbrook Public Library

By Mike Selby

Virginia Barlow’s ‘The Wicked Sister’ is a twist on Cinderella with a regency romance setting. Virginia will be giving a reading of her book at the Library this Valentines Day at 4 pm.

Everyone’s favourite childhood explorer gets her own live action movie in ‘Dora and the Lost City of Gold.’ Swiper No Swiping!

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 Valentines and Love! 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.
