At the Cranbrook Library

What’s new at the Cranbrook Public Library

By Mike Selby

We are now fine free! Your library membership is freedom to explore, learn and connect. Late fines shouldn’t get in your way. And now they won’t!

The Library’s hours are:

10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The next Book Sale of the Friends will be at the library on Saturday, June 11th from 10 am to pm. Just walk towards the fireplace and you’ll find us.

Although this sale is small it will be chalked full of great reading material. We are over loaded with history books and Father’s Day is fast approaching. Need we say more? Also there will be popular Mysteries, Science Fiction, Biography, Fiction, and Newer Releases. Zillions of book bundles are also available.

Your book donations are welcome anytime. Pocket books are especially appreciated. Please bring books in good condition to the Circulation Desk in the Library. They are accepted year round. All Friends’ Volunteers will be wearing masks. It is your choice whether you wear one or not. See you at the sale!

Our new website is up and running: www.cranbrookpubliclibrary.ca

Masks are no longer required inside the Library, but as we gradually ease out of COVID restrictions, we welcome you to wear a mask in the library during this time. If you’d like a mask during your visit, please ask staff.

We are pleased to offer free Wi-Fi all around the outside of the building.
