POKEMON HUNT  Come catch ‘em all – or at least pick up a few new cards for your deck.  Search the library for Pokémon cards, battle gym leaders, and throw Pokéballs starting at 1:30 this Saturday the 26th.  Defeat every challenge to earn your own trainer’s certificate.


ADULT CRAFT  This month we’ll be making fall-themed bookends out of burlap, thread, and paint.  If you missed yesterday’s session, we’re having another one next Monday evening (the 28th) from 6 PM – 7:30 PM.  Materials will be provided, courtesy of the Friends of the Library, but you can always bring your own “notions” from home for a truly personalized project.


SEED LIBRARY  If you borrowed seeds from our collection (or even if you didn’t,) now is the time to think about helping us restock.  We’re looking for viable seeds, preferably from heirloom varieties of edibles, herbs, and flowers.  Just collect the seeds from a healthy plant, label the envelope, and return.  If you’re new to the process, we have books that can show you the steps for different kinds of seeds.  All donations are appreciated and will help us keep this service going next year.

COMPUTER HELP  We can help with your eReader, Internet, or Microsoft Office problems.  Just drop in tonight (September 22nd) from 6 – 7 or this Saturday (the 26th) from 11 – 12.  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.


JUST ARRIVED  We’ve added to the adult collections this week  Check out David Lagercrantz’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web, a continuation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, Robert B. Parker’s The Devil Wins, or Ruth Ware’s tale of a bachelorette party gone very wrong titled In a Dark, Dark Wood.  We also have the latest novels by Salman Rushdie (Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights) and Clive Cussler (The Solomon Curse.)  You’ll find new books on radio, chess, World War II and more in the nonfiction section.


CONSTRUCTION  The handicapped parking space on the side of the library will be unavailable this week while it is repaired.  However, the city has widened Washington Street so it is easier to park in front of the Remington Museum, directly across from the library entrance.  That project should be completed this week.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  The book drop has been temporarily relocated and can still be used.


BOOK SALE  The next Friends of the Library book sale with be on November 5th, 6th, and 7th.  The Friends will be celebrating their thirtieth year of service.  Mark the date on your calendar!


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, 9 AM to 5 PM Wednesday and Friday, and 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your library!
