WEEKLY QUOTE  “I can tell you all I have learned in a lifetime of study in just three laws of history: First, whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.  Second, the mills of the gods grind slowly, yet they grind exceedingly small.  Third, the bee fertilizes the flower that it robs.  Fourth, when it gets dark enough you can see the stars.” – Charles Beard, American historian


DANCE FOR FREE  We’ll be offering a free trial dance class for children this Saturday the 27th at 1 PM.  The instructor is a local professional who offers regular classes in Ogdensburg.


MOVIE NIGHT Movie night will be this Thursday the 25th at 5:30 PM.  We’ll be watching a recent movie based on a popular video game.  Popcorn and soda will be provided, so grab your friends and family and join us.

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.  Our next drop-in computer help will be next Tuesday the 30th from 6 PM – 7 PM (this replaces the session that would normally be held tonight.)  Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our upcoming events.  Printed calendars are always available at the main desk, ready for hanging on a refrigerator.


JUST ARRIVED  Why not check out some of the new books in our science section?  The Physics of Life takes a look at biology and the natural laws that guide it, Seven Skeletons examines the history of the human race through the fossils our ancestors left behind, and Venomous tells of the how and why behind many of the planet’s deadliest animals.  For something safer, check out our new books for foodies.  Tastes Like Chicken relates the story of a very popular bird, A Square Meal recalls what eating was like during the Great Depression, and Real Food/Fake Food breaks down the origins and facts behind some common brands.  Over in fiction, we have new novels by Sandra Brown, Eric van Lustbader, Michael Koryta, N. K. Jemisin, James Patterson, Philippa Gregory, and Lisa Scottoline.  Try something new with spooky adventure The Trees by Ali Shaw, puzzle out mysteries in the Lovecraftian I Am Providence by Nick Mamatas, or journey across post-Soviet Russia by train in Compartment No. 6 by Rosa Liksom.
