JUST ARRIVED Our children’s nonfiction section grew again last week. We’ve added five titles from the “Today’s News” series: The Stock Market, Wild Weather, Terrorism, Fracking, and Invasive Species. There are also five new “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” books: Curious Critters, Incredible World, Crazy Animals, Remarkable Feats, and Extraordinary Bodies. For adults, why not try the new book The Westerns and War Films of John Ford? Those with an interest in crime and punishment may wish to check out Redeemable, an autobiography by a former criminal who turned his life around to become a respected journalist, or Every Last Tie, a memoir written by David Kaczynski, the brother of the Unabomber. We’ve also added new fiction titles made possible by generous donations, from love letters to the written word like Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse and The Rabbit Back Literature Society to novels about the choices people make and the consequences that follow, like Whisper Hollow and The Gods of Tango. If you’re looking for something quicker than a book, we also have new movies, including Concussion, The Revenant, and The Good Dinosaur. Stop in to check out our ever-expanding new titles; you’re sure to find something that will entice you.

 

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.)
