BOOK SALE  The Friends of the Library book sale will continue all this week during library hours.  Stop in to pick up that perfect winter read at the perfect price.


AUTHOR BIRTHDAYS  November is packed with falling leaves, recipes for turkey, and authors’ birthdays.  Among those born this month: Bram Stoker, author of Dracula; Mark Twain; Narnia author and Christian writer C. S. Lewis; poet and artist William Blake; Neil Gaiman; Carl Sagan; Madeleine L’Engle; Kurt Vonnegut; and Rita Mae Brown.  Come take a book or two from the display and read them with a piece of cake in the author’s honor.


LIBRARY BUDGET  Thank you for all of your supportive letters and e-mails.  As a reminder, the City Council meets next Monday, the 16th, at 7 PM to vote on the library’s budget.  Please consider attending that meeting to speak out for the library and against funding cuts.  We appreciate your help.

TEEN CRAFT  Stop in this Saturday, the 14th, at 2 PM to make an awesome beaded bracelet.


MUSIC AND MOVEMENT Toddlers are invited to shake out their sillies every Tuesday at 10 AM. We’ll have music in the air, instruments to play along, parachutes to hide under, and more.  Meet other area families and come dance with us!


STORY TIME There will be no story hour this week, as the library is closed tomorrow.  Join us next week for tales of “thanks!”


JUST ARRIVED  There are many new additions to the children’s and teens’ collections this week.  Help children learn about kindness and patience with a giant panda in Zen Socks, or share an adventure in imagination with them in Beyond the Pond.  This year’s batch of Christmas books has also arrived, including Certain Poor Shepherds and Zombelina Dances the Nutcracker.  Check them out now or remember them for December!  Older children can read about a winged dog’s struggles to be free in Unnaturals: The Battle Begins, or take in a quieter story about moving on after a loss in The Thing About Jellyfish.  The young adult section has two new notable fantasies.  Dreamstrider deals with politics in both the dreaming and waking world.  If you’ve ever wondered about the people in the background of your favorite superhero movie, try reading The Rest of Us Just Live Here and find out how they survive in a world where the “Chosen One” is someone else.  Those who prefer more realistic settings can explore the effects of bullying on both the bullied and the bullies and how to find a chance at redemption in A Step Toward Falling.


We welcome your QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS, PURCHASE REQUESTS, AND PROGRAMMING IDEAS.  Contact us at 312 Washington Street, ogdlib@ncls.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, 9 AM to 5 PM Wednesday and Friday, and 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday.  The library will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday November 11th, in honor of Veterans Day.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your library!
