The Ogdensburg Public Library's Board of Trustees, Staff, and Executive Director would like to thank the community for voting "YES" on Proposition #3 on the recent Ogdensburg Public School District's budget vote. Proposition 3 was a proposed referendum requesting $50,000 from school district residents to replace recent cuts in our budget.
As a result of the support from our community, the library will be able to maintain our current hours of operation and resume purchasing new materials (books, DVDs, audio materials, etc) that had been cut from our budget. We greatly appreciate your continued support of the Ogdensburg Public Library.
WEEKLY QUOTE "The sun was warm but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day. When the sun is out and the wind is still, you're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak, a cloud comes over the sunlit arch, a wind comes off a frozen peak, and you're two months back in the middle of March." – Robert Frost
THANK YOU Thank you for making Library Week a success. We hope you all enjoyed (and maybe even learned from) the festivities. As a bonus, if you liked the specialty coffees they will be making a reappearance at our monthly Social Hours for some time to come.
MOVIE NIGHT Movie night is this week at 5:30 PM on Thursday the 21st. We will be watching a PG-rated animated film about faeries, magic, and love. Popcorn will be provided.
THANK YOU Thank you to everyone – Friends and browsers – who helped make the Fall book sale a success. Look for information about dates for a Spring or Summer sale shortly. In related news, we hope the elevator will be repaired this week, and work on the outdoor lift should be completed within a month. We thank you again for your patience while repairs were made.
PJs 4 XMAS The library is playing host to a PJs 4 Xmas donation box this year. Please feel free to drop off new children’s pajamas and support this great local cause.
CHRISTMAS CARDS A number of Christmas cards are laid out on the table to the left of the reading area. These will be sent to residents of nursing homes in Ogdensburg. Please take a moment to add your well-wishes and thoughts of holiday cheer to these cards – you can write in one or in all of them.
