WREATHS  The Friends of the Library are raffling off two more attractive Christmas wreaths to decorate your home this season.  Tickets are fifty cents each, or three for a dollar.  The drawing takes place on December 7th, so don’t delay.  Wreaths are on display in the library and are pictured on our website.


DECEMBER  Coming up next month: crafts with candles, crafts with (plastic) goldfish, a chance to spin a dreidel to win chocolate, and a chance to visit with Santa Claus.  All dates and times are available on our website, or just watch this space.  As an early reminder, the library will be closed on the 24th, 25th, 26th, 31st, and January 1st, so plan your reading and viewing needs ahead of time!


COMPUTER HELP   Need help downloading our free eBooks, navigating the Internet, or just creating a digital document?  We hold personalized drop-in computer instruction sessions several times a month.  Stop in tonight (the 24th) from 6 – 7 PM.  December classes will be on the 1st, 5th, and 19th.  Call ahead for an appointment or just bring your questions.  No puzzle is too small.


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 lemurs.  All children ages 3 – 6 are welcome.


JUST ARRIVED  Have too much time on your hands, or want something playing in the background for a long project that needs doing?  Thanks to a generous donation, the library now has seasons one through five of AMC’s hit series Mad Men.  We’ve also added copies of the recent hit movies 22 Jump Street and Jurassic World.  For family-friendly fun, check out Pixar’s Inside Out or the classic Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown.  In nonfiction books this week, we’ve added Andy and Don for those who remember the Andy Griffith Show fondly and want to learn more about its two stars.  More broadly, you can also read about The Comedians for an overview of what’s made America laugh throughout our history.  If you were a big fan of the Twilight novels, check out Stephenie Meyer’s tenth anniversary edition, which comes with a new story that asks, “What if Bella were Beau and Edward were Edythe?”


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.  The library will be closed this Thursday and Friday, the 26th and 27th, for Thanksgiving.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your library!
