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.

Seed library, adult programs, and book clubs (for kids, teens and adults!)

JUST ARRIVED We added many new books last week, including the latest novels by Clive Cussler, Lee Child, Jan Karon, and James Patterson. In non-fiction, we have a book by Sister Simone Campbell, the Nun on the Bus who campaigned for the poor and middle class, as well as meditations on The Church of Mercy by Pope Francis. You can also read the story of the Factory Man – John Bassett III, who battled to save the Bassett Furniture Company and its workers. Young children can curl up for a Sleepover with Beatrice and Bear, or chase down My Red Balloon. Teens will enjoy reading the Wild West tale Grace and the Guiltless or catching up with one of the Avengers in graphic novel Thor: Son of Asgard. Stop in or check our website for a full listing of new items.

 

SEED LIBRARY If you borrowed from our seed library this spring, or if you have heritage plants from other sources, please consider collecting some of the seeds to return for next year’s stock. If you’ve never harvested your own seeds before, we have books to help you. Look for them on top of the seed catalogue near the door to the Children’s Room.

Friends meeting tomorrow, author birthdays, AmazonSmile

FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY The Friends of the Ogdensburg Public Library will have their next meeting tomorrow, September 10, at 7 PM. The Friends work to support the library, running the semiannual book sale to raise funds for programming and other library essentials, and volunteering their time in many other ways. The meetings are open to any member of the Friends. Please consider adding your voice to this important organization. Dues start at just $10.

 

LIBRARY CARD SIGN-UP MONTH Any person 5 years of age or older can get a library card for free with proper identification. Be prepared for school or winter or the weekend – come get one today!

 

JUST ARRIVED In adult fiction, we have the latest novels by Haruki Murakami and Nick Harkaway. For children, we have the delicious new book All Four Stars and the exciting Legend of Zelda graphic novels. Teens can choose among the romance in Like No Other, the verse of Two Girls Staring at the Ceiling – who share the same illness but have vastly different coping methods – and the historical struggle for voting equality in Deborah Wiles’s Revolution. New in DVDs this week: a trio of documentaries revolving around storytelling. This American Journey features two men – one an actor from England, the other a photographer from Australia – seeking out the unique American character by asking questions of the people they meet on a cross-country trip. Listening is an Act of Love is a collection of six conversations gathered by StoryCorps. Finally, I Know That Voice spotlights the actors behind your favorite animated characters and investigates how they bring those characters to life.
