The library is accepting book donations again, but they must be printed within the past 5 years or newer, no mold, no dirt, etc. Thank you for your patience, and please join us at the next Friends Book Sale April 5 - 14!
EVIL LEAGUE TRYOUTS Calling all villains! Come to the library this Saturday, August 22nd, prove yourself worthy, and join your fellow evil-doers in a plot to take over Ogdensburg. The super-secret meeting starts at 11 AM.
ADULT READING CONTEST This is the last week to enter our “Escape the Ordinary” drawing. To enter, just write the name of a book you’ve read this summer on a balloon and give it to a staff member. You could win a New York Mets backpack-cooler, a folding camp chair, or a $20 gift certificate to The Sandwich Warehouse on Canton Street. Don’t delay – balloons must be submitted by Saturday the 22nd at 3 PM!
CHILDREN’S READING RAFFLE Have your children been keeping track of their reading online or on paper? Remind them that Summer Reading ends on the last day of August. If they want a chance to win one of our five big prizes (or if they just want something small from the prize barrel) they need to come in by Monday the 31st.
NEW DISPLAY Are you disappointed that the Bassmaster Tournament is over? Miss the fish? Then stop by the library: we have a new display of vintage fishing lures, poles, and more. These unique and functional collectables come from a variety of sources. The long cabinet features the collection of Shannon Demers, while the lures in the circular cabinet are on loan from Bob Bowman, Thomas Murray, and Dean Marshall. As always, we have plenty of books about fishing for you to check out if the display inspires you.
SOCIAL HOUR Our next social hour is tomorrow (Wednesday) the 12th, at 1 PM. Stop by to talk to your neighbors, drink coffee, and munch on treats.
FIREFIGHTERS AND ICE CREAM Come down to the library this Saturday, August 15, at 11 AM for fire safety tips from the Ogdensburg Fire Department. Afterwards, stick around and spoil your lunch with a delicious ice cream sundae.
