WEEKLY QUOTE  “When I was growing up, there were two things that were unpopular in my house. One was me, and the other was my guitar.” – Bruce Springsteen (born September 23)


SOCIAL HOUR  Join us tomorrow the 21st at 2 PM for food, coffee, and conversation.


MOVIE NIGHT  This Thursday at 5:30 PM we’ll be watching a movie while sharing popcorn and soda.  Contact the library to find out this month’s selection.


CONSTRUCTION  Work will begin this week to replace portions of the stucco on the library building.  This should not impact library service.  Repairs continue on the front sidewalk and steps.

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-on computer help will be next Tuesday the 27th from 6 – 7 PM and next Saturday October 1st from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for the specifics on all of our upcoming events. 


ADIRONDACK MUSEUM  If you are looking for a weekend getaway, why not try Blue Mountain Lake?  The Friends of the Library have purchased a loanable pass to the Adirondack Museum.  It can be checked out at the front desk for two days at a time on a first-come first-served basis, and will give 50% off admission for four adults or two adults and children.  Hurry in before the museum closes on October 10th.  Stop in to the library or call for all the details.


JUST ARRIVED  We’re offering more opportunities for armchair vacationers this week, too.  Take a trip through time with the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in House of Lost Worlds, visit the paradoxical and unlikely American-style restaurant in France with Pancakes in Paris, or prepare to navigate your next real-world venture into the wild with How to Read Water.  We also have two new works of true crime – the modern Guilt by Matrimony and the 19th-century-set The Notorious Mrs. Clem, as well as the latest Hercule Poirot novel, Closed Casket.  In children’s chapter books, we’ve added two books about young girls (A Handful of Stars and Raymie Nightingale) and two about young boys (Ice-Out and Soar,) all trying to find their places in the world.  (We’ve also added Fuzzy, the tale of a young robot trying to find his place in the world.)  For younger children, try Bedtime for Batman, which features a boy getting ready for sleep just like his caped hero.  In the young adult section, check out three new comic books: volume two of Teen Titans: New Earth, a new collection of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and volume three of Representative John Lewis’s autobiography, March.


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!
