October 3, 2019

As summer fades away and the bright colors of fall begin to emerge, the Lake Placid Public Library continues to have many things happening inside and outside of our doors.

The reading porch has been busy with visitors and patrons enjoying the amazing views of the lake and the eye catching colors of the trees that surround it.

The children's room

On Friday, Sept. 27 the LPPL held a special Fall Fun Day, which included fall crafts, games and books. The children's room was full of fun ideas and amazing creativity.

The library is continuing the Fall Homework Adventure Club for grades 3 to 5 every Tuesday from 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. in the children's room. Children wishing to attend are required to have a permission letter. Anyone who has questions about enrolling their children in this adventure can call the library at 518-523-3200 or send an email to us at

The Books 4U Program for grades 6 to 8 is a service club. The program is on Thursdays from 3 to 4 p.m. starting Oct. 17 and ending on Thursday, Nov. 17. Students will use computer, writing, artistic and public speaking skills to promote books and literacy activities to children and families. If anyone has any questions, contact Bambi Pedu or Karen Armstrong at 518-523-3200 or by email at

On Friday, Oct. 25 between 10 a.m. and noon, stop in at the library for ideas to help create a cool Halloween costume (no school for LPCSD students). Families with children in pre-k to grade 5 are invited to attend. This activity is free and open to the public.


Story time with Ms. Linda

Every Friday morning, Ms. Linda delights little children and their parents with an exciting story. She follows each story with an activity, a song, a poem or music and dance.

In September Ms. Alicia's pre-k class, which was mastering the Letter L, visited the library for a story with Ms. Linda. The "Library Lion" was the book of choice, and the children participated with a song and the morning ended with a coloring activity. Thank you, Ms. Alicia and students. We all had such a fun morning.


Art gallery

Fine artists in our area are fortunate to have free gallery space to show their work. The LPPL Art Gallery encourages and supports the arts by welcoming experienced artists as well as beginning artists. This fall, the library is featuring the collection of Judy James. Stop in anytime to view the many paintings displayed in our art gallery until the end of November.


Math tutoring

The LPPL is still offering free tutoring for math grades 6-12. It is now by appointment only. Anyone interested can call 518-523-3200.


Knitting group

The knitting club is in full swing with some new members joining the group these past few weeks. The club meets every Tuesday at the library from 6:45 to 9 p.m. Anyone interested may just drop in or call Jennifer Newhart 518-354-3246 or Heidi Roland 518-524-6151.
