Patriot Day


We remember the lives that were lost and the heroes who risked their lives on that terrible day. Twenty years gone but certainly never from our hearts and souls.

2) Check out a "thing" from the Library of Things. Whether its a rainbow sprinkler, a Roku, or a Go Pro, these items will be sure to bring smiles and fun to your family. For Syosset school district residents only, you can check the availability of "things"  here: https://syossetlibrary.assabetinteractive.com/library-of-things/by-object-type/

The Dog Days of Summer

Hello friends,

    Have you ever wondered what the term "dog days of summer" means? Well, today's post will breakdown the meaning of the popular term.

    The "dog days of summer" refers to the period between July 3 - August 11 particularly because, this time period is known to be the hottest days of the summer. The "dog days" are so  hot and humid, that even dogs would much rather lay about rather than run around. 

  In ancient Greece and Ancient Rome astrology, the "dog days" appeared around the same time that Sirius, the dog star, appears to rise alongside the sun. The Greeks and the Romans believed that the heat from the two stars combined is what made these days so hot.

    Since we are currently in the "dog days of summer," check out some of our favorite books about dogs and summer!  Visit our catalog at https://catalog.syossetlibrary.org/ to browse our collection, or ask us, your favorite Children's librarians at 516-921-7161 ext. 211.






Happy reading!
