ADIRONDACK MUSEUM PASS

Thanks to the Friends of the Library, we have a pass for the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake available to all patrons. 

This pass is good for half off admissions for three adults plus children, and can be checked out for free for two days.  Call or stop in at the library for full details. 


The museum is about two hours away and a wonderful day trip for all ages.

Do the (Zombie) Shuffle and cook up some food science with us!

ZOMBIES! This Saturday we’re inviting all teens to shamble down to the library at noon for a zombie walk around the park. If anyone needs help getting into the spirit, we’ll have a make-up workshop at 10 AM – make-up, materials, and fake blood provided. (Those skills might come in handy later this summer, when we play “Humans vs. Zombies” on the 23rd.) Wear old clothes – there will be splatter!

 

 

 

SCIENCE! If your children love playing with their food, we have a program for them. Next Saturday, August 9th, we’ll be experimenting with kitchen science. Some projects will be good to eat, others less so, but they’ll all be safe and fun. The program starts at 11 AM. Don’t forget to keep filling out your summer reading sheet for prizes! You can still sign up online at ogdlib.org/children, or stop in for more details.

 

Braaaaaains, Museums and Donation Thank Yous!

 JUST ARRIVED Take a look into the mysterious lives of famous authors with The Search for Anne Perry and The Mockingbird Next Door, or dip into a mystery novel with The Silkworm by JK Rowling (writing as Robert Galbraith.) Many well-known authors released new books last week, including Richard North Patterson, James Lee Burke, CJ Box, and Bill Pronzini. Children can cheer for Five Six Seven Nate or The Ninja Librarians, lift the flap to discover Who’s in the Tree, and discover colors with the characters of Star Wars.

Zombies and Chickens and Curious George! Oh my!

JUST ARRIVED New this week are novels by Jude Deveraux, James Patterson, Dean Koontz, and Jennifer Weiner. If you’re a fan of mystery series, you’ll want to check out Faceoff, where over twenty authors teamed up to write short stories combining both their writing skills and their most famous characters. For something different, why not try farce The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden, or true story The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Cesar? Young children can lift-the-flap and find out Who’s in the Tree, while teens will enjoy the slice-of-life graphic novel This One Summer.

 

  CHICKENS This Tuesday at 2 pm, the library will play host to live chicken breeds from all over the world. Join Susie the Sussex Chicken and friends to learn all about these birds and how to care for them. Children will be allowed to pet the chickens. This will take place in Library Park if the weather cooperates. Look for more children’s programming all season. This year’s Summer Reading Program is all about science, but we’ll have prizes in August for those who read in any category. Register today, online or in person.
