At the Cranbrook Public Library

Irish trouble continues to haunt the Library with two brand new works by Brenda Gillen. Both ‘Zen and the art of Stealing Dynamite’ and ‘Hooligan Horses of the Cassiars’ feature the longsuffering Martin Maguire—the hilarious subject of Gillen’s previous novels.

Patricia Newman explains to younger readers how research into communication between elephants is being used to help protect them in her new book ‘Eavesdropping on Elephants.’

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 Valentines and Love! 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

We also have a new JUST FOR TEENS section on our website, located here:
