SNOWFLAKES  Have a spare minute?  Stop in and make a paper snowflake to decorate the library or your home.  They aren’t cold and never melt in the sun!  The display and materials will be up all month.


GOLDFISH CRAFT  Children and teens can make goldfish “bowl” ornaments this Thursday, December 10th, at 5 PM.  Add them to your Christmas tree, a window, or anything else you decorate.  We have a number of colors available, and they can suit any season.


DREIDEL  Learn how to play this traditional game and earn chocolate coins at the same time.  You’ll be able to take your dreidel home with you to continue playing with family and friends.  Don’t miss it – this Saturday, the 12th, at 2 PM.

ADULT CRAFT  Our last craft of the year will help shed a little light in your home.  We’ll be making burlap silhouette wraps for (electric) candles.  All materials provided.  Drop in December 14th (next Monday) from 2:30 to 4 PM.

SANTA  Does your child know what they want for Christmas?  Have them come whisper it to Santa Claus himself on Saturday the 19th at 2 PM.  We’ll be taking digital photos for you free of charge.  No registration is required, but you can stop by the library to fill out a permission form ahead of time if you wish.


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  Every Wednesday at 10:30 AM we share a picture book (or two) and do a simple craft.  All children ages 3 – 6 are welcome.


JUST ARRIVED  Help children warm to the cold weather with two new picture books.  The Little Snowplow by Lora Koehler follows a snowplow as he trains for the big job to come, while Snow by Sam Usher tells the story of a boy and his grandfather and the first big snowfall in the city.  Just in time for the holiday, we also have Jane Yolen’s How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah?  Away from the December theme, we’re also featuring a book about the world’s first computer programmer: Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine.  Older kids can pick up the latest in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Old School.  For teens we have five new graphic novels.  Pick up some traditional super hero action with Ms. Marvel volume 3 or Teen Titans volume 1, or grab the latest issue of the manga The Devil is a Part-Timer for a comedy.  If you’re looking for something different, pick up the wordless Love: The Tiger or Neil Gaiman’s illustrated twist on Sleeping Beauty, The Sleeper and the Spindle.


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.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your library!
