What’s On At The Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

Dennis Glover’s ‘The Last Man in Europe’ examines George Orwell’s race against time (he was dying of tuberculosis) to finish his last novel—‘1984.’

Seymour Simon’s ‘Elephants’ explains everything one would want to know about this magnificent animal in this brightly illustrated work for young readers.

StoryTime and Baby LapTime are both on hiatus until September.

The Summer Reading Club is very close. Registration begins June 22, and is ongoing all summer. Join us on Saturday, June 22nd, from 11 am to 1 pm for snacks, drinks, and a door prize. For more information please contact the Library.
