Cranford Public Library Plans New Services

There are thousands of books inside the Cranford Public Library on Walnut Avenue but, under a new program coming this year, those books will represent only a fraction of the materials that will be easily available to library patrons. Library Director Michael Maziekien and Head of Reference Services Marissa Lieberman tell us more about the new service as well as other activities taking place. We also discuss some of the changes COVID has brought and how the library might be helping you grow your garden.

Talking Photos on the Radio

We’re surrounded by beautiful images but often we take them for granted or don’t notice them. Frank Little, a Cranford photographer, sees many of the same things we pass daily but with a lot of hard work, a bit of luck, and an artist’s eye, he’s able to create beautiful pictures.

Frank’s photos often combine the man-made with celestial spheres and his work has brought him notice far beyond Cranford’s borders. In this week’s Cranford Radio podcast we talk with Frank about his work, how he had his start and get a glimpse into how he creates his magnificent images.
