What’s on at the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Caroline Moorehead’s “A House in the Mountains’ tells the gripping story of four young Italian women who actively resisted German invaders when their country changed sides in 1943.

Everyone’s favorite Australian children entertainers are back with a brand new DVD—‘The Wiggles: Party Time.’

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

The Library now has home safety detectors for checkout. We have five Thermal Imaging Cameras (they connect to your phone) available for check out. They will show hot and cold spots in your home, and come with instructions how to make your home more energy efficient.

We also have two Radon Detector Kits also available. These devices will detect any radon gas coming into homes, with also instructions on what to do should radon be detected.

Database of the month: Ancestry.ca Library Edition— provides genealogical and historical research capabilities. With more than 5 billion names in over 4,600 databases, includes census, military, court, land, and probate records; vital and church records; directories; and passenger lists. While you have to be in the Library to use it, this is a fantastic and popular resource.

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