WEEKLY QUOTE "The leaves fall patiently/ Nothing remembers or grieves/ The river takes to the sea/ The yellow drift of leaves." – Sara Teasdale, American poet
BOOK SALE The Friends of the Library are holding their Fall book sale this week, starting at 5 PM on Thursday November 3rd and continuing through Saturday the 5th.

JUST ARRIVED Check out some of our new graphic novels: Jughead Volume One takes a fresh look at a familiar character from the long-running Archie comics; How to Talk To Girls At Parties follows a teen who has an encounter with some otherworldly characters; The Singing Bones shows off artist Shaun Tan’s reinterpretations of classic fairy tales; and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: The Crucible is pure horror focused around a sixteen-year-old witch. We have plenty of new young adult fantasy as well, including some in traditional medieval-like settings (Three Dark Crowns, Crooked Kingdom,) some in modern milieux (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Swarm,) and others in dystopias (Replica, The Catalyst.) If you enjoyed the movie or book Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, check out the companion work Tales of the Peculiar. For younger children, explore new ways of looking at familiar creatures in They All Saw a Cat or new ways of thinking (about rocket ships) in Also an Octopus. If big animals are just a little too scary, let them travel through a picture book with a brave mouse in Little Mouse’s Big Book of Beasts. Finally, from the author of the very popular I Want My Hat Back and This Is Not My Hat comes We Found a Hat, which features two tortoise friends with a puzzling problem.
We welcome your QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS, PURCHASE REQUESTS, AND PROGRAMMING IDEAS. Contact us at 312 Washington Street, firstname.lastname@example.org, 393-4325, or through any of our social media sites (you can do a search for Ogdensburg Public Library, or find the links on our website.)
WEEKLY HOURS are 9 AM to 8 PM Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and 9 AM to 5 PM on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your library!
