SARATOGA SPRINGS – Jennifer Ogrodowski is the youth services director of Saratoga Public Library and she took the time to describe the upcoming programs in the library this fall.

“We are really excited to unveil our One-Thousand Books Before Kindergarten Program. We have not done anything like this before,” said Ogrodowski.

e One-Thousand Books Before Kindergarten Program is an educational program that promotes reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers. is pro- gram will start at the library Sept. 1.

As far as the library as a whole, “we have everything from yoga to S.T.E.A.M. family events to multi-cultural stories, and we also offer parenting programs,” Ogrodowski noted, using an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.

For infants specifically, the library is offering new music, movement and play programs for ages up to 18 months. Music, Movement, and Play will be 45-minute classes in which caregivers can bring infants to 

the Crenshaw Story Room to engage in musical play, peek-a- boo, singing and bouncing, and other activities suitable for that age range.

“Music, Movement, and Play should be a lot of fun,” Ogrodowski exclaimed.

On Wednesday, Oct. 11 at 6:00 p.m. in the H. Dutcher Community Room, there will be a Roller Derby event. Different members from roller derby teams come and talk to the kids in attendance, they’ll share video clips, and listen to all the stories and fun the roller derby members have.

“As part of our long range plan we’re focusing on sustainability this year and in the years to come so I think that’ll have a nice impact on some of the pro- grams that we o er and some of the ways that we go about library procedures and things like that. We’re really trying to incorporate that initiative into our daily lives,” Ogrodowski said.

The Saratoga Public Library is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sunday noon to 5:00 p.m. For more information, contact 518-584- 7860 or visit www.sspl.org.
