New releases available at the library 

After a few weeks of mostly glorious weather, a freeze warning was given for the Cranberry Isles Sunday. Rough seas were forecast for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday due to Hurricane Teddy passing nearby on its way to Nova Scotia. However, daytime temperatures are expected to remain in the 60s for the rest of this week. 

Steve Pagels, owner of the Cranberry Cove Ferry, canceled the ferry’s last run on Monday and all runs on Tuesday because of expected winds and surge from the hurricane.
