Governor Cuomo, despite having an extra $5.5B in revenue this year and proposing up to a 4.8% increase in state education funding, proposed FLAT funding for our community libraries. Last year’s enacted state budget included a 5.7% increase in education funding, but a mere 1.2% increase in local library aid.

Sitting here with snow and ice falling from the sky, the Oswego Public Library invites you to send or drop off your favorite summer pic of Oswego. We will post these pics, along with your first name and last initial, in the main reading room near the Young Adult collection. A great time to drop them off would be during the Friends of the Library’s mini golf event from 10 to 4 on Monday, January 19th. Just leave them on the main desk as the library is closed to regular business on this special day.
