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.

New and Coming Soon

JUST ARRIVED  Bring some of your summer gardening with you past the harvest season with Saving Container Plants, learn a gentler form of yoga and Sit with Less Pain, or find out more about the woman behind one of the world’s most famous paintings in Mona Lisa: A Life Discovered. If you’re in the mood for a good story, enjoy a madcap crime caper with a twist in Chinese Cooking for Diamond Thieves, travel across Philadelphia with a young would-be jazz singer in 2 A.M.

What's new this week?

Warmer weather should return this week, but if it doesn’t: cooler than expected temperatures and an abundance of rain will make this a good time to curl up with book, magazine, or movie.

 

MISSING NEWSPAPER One of our patrons is looking for a copy of the Ogdensburg Advance dated June 1, 1869 to be used in a research project. Since this is one that predates our records, he’s turning to the community to help. Should you have some old newspapers hidden away, take a look through them! If you find the edition we need, please contact Linda Marshall, Archivist, at the library.

 

ZOMBIES RETURN Teens: ever wonder if you have what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse? Wonder no more! We’ll be playing Humans vs. Zombies this Saturday, August 23 at 11 AM. It will be a wild game of capture the flag, with added water balloons (and the undead.) We need players for both sides, so feel free to come in costume. The more people we have the better, so bring your friends! Complete rules are on our website at ogdlib.org/Teens.
