What’s happening at the Cranbrook Public Library

By Mike Selby

The outrageous behaviour of Winston’s Churchill’s American mother is explored in Stephanie Barron’s ‘That Churchill Woman.’

A sixteen-year-old girl pours all of her anger into her first attempt at a rap song in ‘On The Come Up’ by Angie Thomas.

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