FALL WREATH RAFFLE  Summer isn’t over yet, but we all know that Fall is around the corner.  Enter our new raffle to spruce up your home with some Autumn color this coming season: we have three hand-decorated wreaths available to win.  Tickets are 50 cents each or three for $1 and can be purchased at the main desk.  The raffle will run through Friday, September 11th.


SUMMER READING  This year’s summer reading program will end on Monday, August 31st.  All books must be read, prizes claimed, and raffle entries entered by that date.

ADULT READING CONTEST  This is the last week to enter our “Escape the Ordinary” drawing.  To enter, just write the name of a book you’ve read this summer on a balloon and give it to a staff member.  You could win a New York Mets backpack-cooler, a folding camp chair, or a $20 gift certificate to The Sandwich Warehouse on Canton Street.  Don’t delay – balloons must be submitted by Saturday the 22nd at 3 PM!


CHILDREN’S READING RAFFLE  Have your children been keeping track of their reading online or on paper?  Remind them that Summer Reading ends on the last day of August.  If they want a chance to win one of our five big prizes (or if they just want something small from the prize barrel) they need to come in by Monday the 31st.



NEW DISPLAY  Are you disappointed that the Bassmaster Tournament is over?  Miss the fish?  Then stop by the library: we have a new display of vintage fishing lures, poles, and more.  These unique and functional collectables come from a variety of sources.  The long cabinet features the collection of Shannon Demers, while the lures in the circular cabinet are on loan from Bob Bowman, Thomas Murray, and Dean Marshall.  As always, we have plenty of books about fishing for you to check out if the display inspires you.


SOCIAL HOUR  Our next social hour is tomorrow (Wednesday) the 12th, at 1 PM.  Stop by to talk to your neighbors, drink coffee, and munch on treats.


FIREFIGHTERS AND ICE CREAM  Come down to the library this Saturday, August 15, at 11 AM for fire safety tips from the Ogdensburg Fire Department.  Afterwards, stick around and spoil your lunch with a delicious ice cream sundae.
