Events for the week of June 8-13

SOCIAL HOUR  Our next social hour is tomorrow (Wednesday) the 10th, at 1 PM.  Stop by to talk to your neighbors, drink coffee, and munch on treats.


PUZZLES  The library provides many ways of meeting new people.  If you can’t make the social hour or any of our other programs, you can stop by whenever we’re open to work on a jigsaw puzzle.  We almost always have a 500 - 750 piece puzzle set out on a table directly in front of the bay windows by the new books.  Anyone can contribute – spend five minutes or an hour hunting down just the right piece, alone or with friends.  The library also welcomes donations (with all the pieces and in the original box, please) to help us keep this informal service going.  

PAPER BEADS  Teens can learn to make colorful and fun beads from paper this Saturday the 13th at 2 PM.  These beads can be used to make jewelry, ornaments, and more.  Drop in to find out how to make them.  The process is simple and, once learned, can be done at home with any kind of paper.


AUTHOR VISIT  Make time to meet local author Glenn S. Guiles on Saturday, June 20th, at 2 PM.  Mr. Guiles has written two picture books about Harriet the miniature donkey: A Hug for Harriet and Harriet’s Big Adventure.  Come hear these two charming stories read aloud by the man who wrote them, and learn how he was inspired to create his characters.


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.  This week’s theme is fossils!  All children ages 3 – 6 are welcome. 


JUST ARRIVED  This week we’ve added the latest in two 19th-century mystery series.  Alex Grecian’s The Harvest Man is set in Victorian London, while Lyndsay Faye’s The Fatal Flame takes place in pre-Civil War New York City.  For the crafty (or those who would be crafty) we have two new books: Crewel Intentions for people who enjoy embroidery and The Encyclopedia of Drawing Techniques for people who work in two-dimensional media.  In preparation for our summer reading theme, Every Hero has a Story, we’ve added several new easy readers about your children’s favorite superheroes – from Black Widow and Iron Man to the X-Men and Batman.  Disney fans can also check out two new books on Tinkerbell and her fairy friends.  Meanwhile, teens can pick up a little magic in our two newest graphic novels fantasies, the medieval-esque Nimona and the more modern SuperMutant Magic Academy.


We welcome your QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS, PURCHASE REQUESTS, AND PROGRAMMING IDEAS.  Contact us at 312 Washington Street,, 393-4325, or 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 Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your library!
