This week at OPL...
Scott took a trip to talk about some of the best books written on his favorite subject: the Hudson River ! And great news: his top choice, Robert Boyle's The Hudson River , is available digitally from The Internet Archive. Click here to create an account and read away !
Feeling creative? Patrons of all ages are invited to take part in a Bookmark Contest : flex your artistic skills and design a bookmark for the library! Winning designs will be printed and available at all of our service desks for everyone in Ossining to enjoy when the library reopens!
No printer? The final print size is 2” x 7.5”—you can use your own paper to design and you can email your entry information to Mallory Marinaro . No scanner? We can work something out so that everyone has the opportunity to participate! Email Mallory and we will work it out. We can’t wait to see what everyone creates!

Louis is back with recommendations for TV shows that are begging to be binge-watched...and a cameo from a furry friend. In Worth Watching with Louis , find out his top picks for shows on Netflix (and make sure to let us know what you've watched and loved!).
Dreaming of taking a trip? We are, too (insert woozy-faced emoji here!)--and so are James and Guillermo , who are back with new Travel Logs ! If you're in the mood for an escape, watch below!
If you've been missing out on our Saturday morning Knitting Group--or have taken up knitting as a hobby since you've been home!--we're excited to announce that it's made its way online! Our Knitting Group will be meeting virtually, Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Register on our online calendar , and you'll receive the meeting information via email.
