FALL WREATH RAFFLE  Summer isn’t over yet, but we all know that Fall is around the corner.  Enter our new raffle to spruce up your home with some Autumn color this coming season: we have three hand-decorated wreaths available to win.  Tickets are 50 cents each or three for $1 and can be purchased at the main desk.  The raffle will run through Friday, September 11th.


SUMMER READING  This year’s summer reading program will end on Monday, August 31st.  All books must be read, prizes claimed, and raffle entries entered by that date. Comic books and superhero designs must also be submitted by the end of the month.  We hope everyone had fun, and we’re already looking forward to next year’s program!

COMPUTER HELP  Need help creating electronic documents, navigating the internet, or using your new eReader?  We can help.  Drop in tonight (the 25th) from 6 – 7, next Tuesday (September 1st) from 6 – 7, or this Saturday the 29th from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Call ahead for an appointment or just bring in your questions.


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. 


UPCOMING  September will see the return of adult crafting projects, a make-your-own locker magnet session for teens, and a Pokémon card hunt for children.  Watch this space or check our website for details.

JUST ARRIVED  We’ve recently added new thrillers by Michael Kortya, Linda Fairstein, and Jonathan Kellerman.  If you’re looking for something slower-paced, try Ivan Doig’s last book, Last Bus to Wisdom, featuring a boy and his great-uncle on a cross-country trip, or Debbie Macomber’s latest, Silver Linings.  Finally, we have two novels for dog lovers: an account of the first man to tame a wolf for a companion – The Dog Master, by W. Bruce Cameron – and Eileen Brady’s latest veterinarian mystery, Unleashed.  Artists can borrow Quilled Animals for detailed instructions on how to turn strips of paper into any of twenty different creatures or Paint Like the Masters for tips on recreating old styles of painting.  Feeling the itch to travel without actually leaving home?  Travel through time with two of our newest titles.  The Lost World of the Old Ones looks at the archaeological traces left behind by the original inhabitants of the American Southwest and Al Roker’s The Storm of the Century recounts the great hurricane of 1910. 


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.)


SUMMER HOURS are 9 AM to 8 PM Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 9 AM to 5 PM Wednesday and Friday, and 9 AM to 3 PM on Saturday.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your library!
