WEEKLY QUOTE  “How did it get so late so soon?  It's night before it's afternoon.  December is here before it's June.  My goodness how the time has flewn.  How did it get so late so soon?” ― Dr. Seuss
 
RAFFLE  Stop in to enter a raffle for an adorable hand-made decorated snowman hat.  Tickets are $1 each.  The drawing will be Friday December 16th, so don’t delay!
 
EBOOKS  If you can’t make it into the library this month but own a tablet, eReader, smartphone, or computer, check out our large collection of digital material.  You can download eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines, all for free.  Our content provider, Overdrive, has issued a challenge: if patrons across the North Country check out 8,100 items, we’ll receive $1000 in credits toward new purchases.  If you enjoy digital reading, help us meet this goal!

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 and this Saturday the 10th at the same time.  Drop-in computer help hours will tonight the 6th from 6 – 7 PM and next Saturday the 17th from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Social Hour is also next Wednesday, and Movie Night follows on Thursday the 15th.  Call the library or check out our website for the details on all of our upcoming events. 
 
JUST ARRIVED  Creativity and inspiration are all over our new book section this week.  If you’re a traditional artist, look into DK’s guide to Artist’s Painting Techniques, or branch out into the world of digital art using your tablet and the new book Painting Without Paint.  Should jewelry-making be more your style, investigate new techniques in Modern Beaded Lace or try out some of the designs in The Unofficial Guide to Crafting the World of Harry Potter, featuring necklaces, wands, and more. On the other hand, if you find that winter is the perfect time to pull out your needle, thread, and paper patterns and want to tackle some common quilting problems, check out Piecing Makeover.  For those content to simply admire the creativity of others, we have a number of selections.  Learn about a very American style of music in four new books.  The History of Rock and Roll Volume 1: 1920-1963 is exactly what it says, while Devil's Music, Holy Rollers and Hillbillies covers similar territory from a different angle.  Of course, the invention of Rock and Roll goes hand in hand with the invention of the electric guitar, so read the story of that instrument in Play it Loud.  Finally, look in-depth at the iconic hits and the people who wrote them in Anatomy of a Song.
 
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, ogdlib.org.)
 
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!
