What’s on at the Cranbrook Public Library

Mike Selby

‘The Master Plan’ is Chris Wilson’s story of how—after being sentenced to life in prison—he was able to convince a judge to give him a second chance.

Pamela Williams explains how easy it is to take unwanted toys and turn them into cool experiments and inventions in her latest book ‘Remixing Toys.’

StoryTime and Baby LapTime are both on hiatus until September.

The Summer Reading Club is here! Registration has begun and is ongoing all summer. There are weekly programs, contests, prizes, movie nights, and much more. Please check our website, our Facebook page, or call us at 250-426-4063 for more information.
