WORD OF THE WEEK Eldritch: refers to something very eerie – most literally, other-worldly
BOOK SALE The bargains continue this week during regular library hours – from books to magazines to puzzles to CDs and DVDs. Don’t miss the bag sale this Saturday the 4th – for $5 you’ll be given a bag to stuff as full as you can. (Of course, you can purchase more than one bag.) All profits go the Friends of the Ogdensburg Public Library, which funds programming and other purchases for the library throughout the year.

JUST ARRIVED After the incident recounted in nursery rhyme, Humpty Dumpty developed a fear of heights. How did he overcome it? Read the new picture book After the Fall to find out. The Bad Mood and the Stick, by Lemony Snicket, also deals with managing your feelings, while Tyrannosaurus Rex vs. Edna the Very First Chicken might also help you face your fears. Our newest chapter books feature themes of friendship and belonging. In Frazzled #2: Ordinary Mishaps and Inevitable Catastrophes a middle-schooler makes a new friend vie a locker mix-up, while in Paper Chains two girls worry that their private problems (and their inability to confide in each other) are driving them apart. Finally, in Katherine Applegate’s Wishtree a two hundred and sixteen year old oak, bearing two centuries’ worth of hopes and dreams in its branches, tries to heal a rift in the town surrounding it.
