WEEKLY QUOTE “Summer is not obligatory.  We can start an infernally hard jigsaw puzzle in June with the knowledge that, if there are enough rainy days, we may just finish it by Labor Day, but if not, there's no harm, no penalty.  We may have better things to do.” – Nancy Gibbs, American journalist


SOCIAL HOUR  Social Hour is tomorrow, Wednesday the 8th, from 2 – 3 PM.  Join your neighbors for coffee, treats, and conversation.


BEADING  Come in to learn how to make a napkin holder with wire and beads next Monday the 13th at 3 PM.  All materials are provided, and there is no cost to attend.  If you would like to see additional crafting classes at different times, please offer your suggestions to library staff.

MOVIE NIGHT  Stop in for popcorn, soda, and a recent animated movie about animals who have created their own society next Thursday the 16th at 5:30 PM.


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.  Drop-in computer help is tonight the 7th from 6 – 7 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our upcoming events – weekly, monthly, or one-time-only.


SUMMER READING  If your child wants to get a jump-start on our summer reading program, stop into the library for instructions and worksheets.  We have a number of fantastic prizes this year; every five level-appropriate books your child reads earns a raffle ticket and a small treat from our prize barrel.


JUST ARRIVED Last week we highlighted new children’s and adult’s titles, so this week we’re focusing on the teens.  In the realm of science fiction, join three young men battling through a video game with real life consequences in Genius: The Game, or time travel with a young woman in The Square Root of Summer.  Fantasy is represented in the Victorian-set tale The Lie Tree and the India-inspired The Star-Touched Queen.  You can also solve mysteries with a pre-Superman Lois Lane in the sequel Double Down.  For more realistic fiction, try Flannery, about a love potion that might work better than intended, Highly Illogical Behavior, where a reclusive boy meets a goal-oriented girl, or The Darkest Corner, where a witness to a murder begins to suspect her testimony sent the wrong man to prison.  All of these and more are available just outside the teen room, opposite the magazines and to the right of the graphic novels.  Take a look, and discover a new favorite!


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!
