Thanks Giving, Amazon Smile, Electronic Borrowing and When We'll Be Closed!

Now that we’ve gotten the first few snowflakes of winter out of the way, it’s time to settle in, admit that warmer temperatures are behind us, and start planning for the long months ahead. Why not make the public library part of your plans?

 

GIVE THANKS If you’re feeling grateful for something in your life – your family or friends, a new opportunity, an old memory, one of the little things or something huge – come add to this year’s gratitude garland. Just choose a paper leaf and write down a thankful thought or two. We’ll string them up around the library for the coming season. Anyone of any age is welcome to contribute.

 

MUSIC AND MOVEMENT Toddlers are invited to shake out their sillies every Tuesday at 10 AM. We’ll have music in the air, instruments to play along, parachutes to hide under, and more. Meet other area families and come dance with us!

 

STORY TIME Join us for our weekly story hour. Every Wednesday at 10:30 AM we’ll share a picture book (or two) and do a simple craft. This week’s theme is the letter I. We’ll be painting pictures of ice cream using ice cubes. All children ages 3-6 are welcome.

Bag Sale and Gratitude Garland. CLOSED TODAY, November 11.

BAG SALE Thank you to everyone who made a purchase at our book sale last weekend. If you missed it, or if you want to pick up a few more items for even cheaper prices, come to the Friends of the Library bag sale this Saturday, November 15th. Each paper bag will be $2, and can be stuffed with the books of your choice. Friends of the Library tote bags and Just Desserts cookbooks will also be available. Finally, this is your last chance to enter the raffle for our large book wreath. All proceeds from the book and bag sales, the raffle, and last week’s auction will go to the Friends of the Ogdensburg Public Library. They support the library’s programming, book purchases, and more.

 

BIRTHDAYS Authors with November birthdates include Mark Twain, Carl Sagan, Neil Gaiman, Louisa May Alcott, and William Blake. We have their books and more on display near our new section. Whether these are old favorites or new to you, why not take a look?

 

BOOKWORMS Our book club for school-age children and parents will meet at 5 PM this Thursday, November 13. We’ll be choosing a new book to read for next month, so we invite children fourth grade or older to join now.

 

MUSIC AND MOVEMENT Toddlers are invited to shake out their sillies every Tuesday at 10 AM. Meet other area families and come dance with us!

Are you going to be coming to the book sale on Thursday the 6th, Friday the 7th and Saturday the 8th?
