What’s happening at the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Many decades ago, a Cranbrook resident demanded that the Cranbrook Library remove Mel Frank’s ‘Marijuana Grower’s Guide,’ from its collection, feeling it was not appropriate library material. After a thorough review process, the Library Board voted to keep the book on the shelves. Unhappy with this decision, the person then took their complaint to the RCMP, who left the them feeling even unhappier.

Times have changed a bit. New this week is ‘Cannabis: A Beginner’s Guide to Growing Marijuana’ is new this week written by Danny Danko (although I remain suspicious of his last name).

Temple Gradin calls on young readers to experiment and think about science in her latest book ‘Calling All Minds.’

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

FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food as payment for overdue fines (please, no out of date food, no condiments, or food in glass containers). One item will be worth one dollar of fines. All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those pesky overdue fines while helping others in need.

Our website with all kinds of great information and links can be found at: www.cranbrookpubliclibrary.ca

The Cranbrook Public Library Endowment Fund gives people an opportunity to create a meaningful legacy, to build a strong foundation in the present for the future of the Library. For more information about how you can contribute, please phone us at 250-426-4063 Ext: 1001, or visit this link:

Another great way to support our Endowment Fund is to purchase one of our Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies 2019 Wall Calendars. The full colour calendars feature brilliant local photography, and a chance to win prizes every single day of 2019. Calendars are $10.00 each, and make a great gift.

On display this month is the amazing holiday display by Kathleen Simon.
