'sticks of butter'what are these? i.e. how much does a stick weigh?

I am wanting to make some cookies (American recipe) and it calls for 'two sticks of butter' - I need to know what this equates to in grams (or ounces I guess for Americans).

1 LB of butter is divided into 4 "sticks"
1/4 LB each (4oz)
