WEEKLY QUOTE “Good morrow, Benedick. Why, what's the matter, that you have such a February face, so full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?” – William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing

 

COMPUTER HELP Drop-in computer help for basic PC and eReader help will be tonight, the 23rd, from 6 PM – 7 PM as well as next Tuesday (March 1st) at the same time. Help will also be available next Saturday March 5th from 11 AM – 12 PM. Bring your questions and we’ll help you find answers.

 

REGULAR PROGRAMS Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM. Story Time for ages 3 – 6, with picture books and crafts, is Wednesday at 10:30 AM. This week’s theme is pets, and we’ll be making our own (paper) goldfish. Next month’s Social Hour will be on the 9th. Additional computer help days will be Saturday the 19th and Tuesday the 22nd. Look for information on our St. Patrick’s program and yearly ninja training / egg hunt in next week’s article. Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our programming.

 

ANNUAL REPORT In addition to the article published in this paper last Thursday, the library’s Annual Report to the Community, with plenty of statistics on how you and your neighbors use the library, is available on the front page of our website. Check it out!

JUST ARRIVED We’ve just received two shipments of books for our children’s and young adult collections. If you have a would-be speed demon or two at home, they’re sure to enjoy Megafast Trucks and Megafast Cars, both by John Farndon. Older children might enjoy The Terrible Two Get Worse, where a pair of pranksters – once enemies, now allies – find themselves battling a principal even stricter than the old one (and maybe even teaming up with their former nemesis.) For those looking to mix comedy, fantasy, and adventure, check out the second book in the Tuesday McGillycuddy series, A Week Without Tuesday. (And if they like reading about girls named after days of the week, also try Friday Barnes, Girl Detective.) Popular author Gordon Korman has followed up 2015’s mysterious-village-with-a-secret tale Masterminds with Criminal Destiny. For animal lovers, we have chapter books both sweet and sad. Check out Pax, about a boy and the pet fox he had to leave behind, Some Kind of Courage, wherein a boy tries to retrieve his stolen horse, or three stories featuring felines: The Cat Who Came in Off the Roof, The Nine Lives of Jacob Tibbs, and Little Cat’s Luck. For teens, we’ve just added the sequel to the popular wordless work Love: The Tiger, this one titled Love: The Fox.

 

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 and 9 AM to 5 PM on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your library!
