What’s on at the Cranbrook Library

Mike Selby

‘Watch Your Tongue’ has author Mark Abley exploring everyday saying and idioms, and what their frequent use says about us.

With the help of her father, preteen Emma Biggs illustrates how young people can start and grow their very own garden in ‘Gardening with Emma.’

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 Mothers! Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.

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