What’s Happening At The Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Tshaukuesh Elizabeth Penashue’s ‘Nitinikiau Innusi’ (I Keep the Land Alive) is the Labrador Innu cultural and environmental activist’s personal diary, charting her day-to-day experiences as well as speeches, court appearances, and interviews with reporters.

A young boy struggles to discover whether he is real or a robot in Padraig Kenny’s latest book ‘Tin.’

StoryTime and Baby LapTime are both on hiatus until later this month.

Thank-you to everyone who participated in this year’s record breaking Summer Reading Club. Congratulations to all 708 participants—and a giant thank-you to all parents and community sponsors. If you were unable to attend last week’s closing ceremonies, you can still pick up your medal and certificate at the Library until September 30th.

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

The provincial interlibrary loan service has updated their website and have changed their name from OUTLOOK to ILLUME. It is much easier to navigate, but please contact the library should you need any help.
