Kiosk

The CRIT Library would like to introduce you to its book-lending kiosk. Patrons can now check-in or check-out items at their leisure. From DVDs, audio and books. A up-to-date library card with a barcode is all you need.

The kiosk is simply an extension of the same service behind having book drop box conveniently located outside the library.

Storytime

Helping children discover a love of books and reading.

Storytime is great for encouraging early literacy in preschool children. Rhymes, songs and stories encourage a love of language, and children also learn skills which they need when they go to school such as participation, sitting still and listening.
