WEEKLY QUOTE  "Spring scarce had greener fields to show than these of mid September; through the still warm noon the rivulets ripple forth a gladder tune than ever in the summer." -  Edward Dowden, Irish writer


FAMILY BOOK CLUB  Join us this Thursday, the 15th, at 5 PM for the first meeting of our new family book club.  We’ll be reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by Roald Dahl.  You do not have to purchase your own copy or read the book before the meeting.  Middle- and high-schoolers are also invited to the comic book reading club starting later this month on the 29th.

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 will be held Saturday the 17th from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Social Hour is the 21st, and Movie Night is the 22nd (we’ll be watching another movie based on a popular video game – stop in or call to find out which one.)  Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our upcoming events. 


CONSTRUCTION  In the coming weeks some reconstruction work may be taking place on the steps at the front of the library (on Washington Street.)  Portions of the stairs may be closed off at times, but the building and the front entrance will remain open. 


JUST ARRIVED  We’ve recently added new novels by Jonathan Safran Foer (Here I Am,) Louise Penny (A Great Reckoning,) J. D. Robb (Apprentice in Death,) Caleb Carr (Surrender, New York,) James Lee Burke (The Jealous Kind,) Danielle Steel (Rushing Waters,) and J. A. Jance (Downfall,) as well as a book of essays from spymaster John Le Carré (The Pigeon Tunnel.)  Other novels new to our collection include War and Turpentine, a semi-biographical story of an artist’s experiences in the First World War; I Will Send Rain, set in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl; and The Yellow Diamond, a mystery set among the very wealthy.  If you aren’t tired of politics yet, why not dip into our nonfiction and try Democracy for Realists, The Carnival Campaign (about the presidential election of 1840,) or Necessary Trouble, which examines recent political movements in America from the Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street?  If, on the other hand, you are tired of politics, try one of our two new books on football, Big Blue Wrecking Crew (covering the 1986 New York Giants) or The Mannings, or a wide-ranging history of chairs entitled Now I Sit Me Down.


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!
