Books to Read in a Lifetime

Thanksgivings From the Oswego Public Library

Thanksgiving is the time of the year the Oswego Public Library reflects on the generosity of those in our community who have helped us provide services to our patrons. This year the Children’s Room is thankful for receiving a substantial grant from the Oswego County Youth Bureau to help with the costs of the Summer Reading Program. Several new programs were introduced. The children benefited from building a science journal, saltwater Batik, painting class, Toddler Tango, and exercise and nutrition programs.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Oswego Public Library will close early at 5 PM on Wednesday, November 26th and reopen after the holiday at Noon on Saturday, November 29th.  Safe travels and good times with family and friends to all!

Children's Board Donates to Early Literacy Computer

Laurie Doty & Karen Reynolds present a check to Edward Elsner

The Children's Board of Oswego Co-Presidents Laurie Doty and Karen Reynolds presented a $500 check to the Oswego Public Library in the Children's Room.  Their generous donation was the final piece in paying for an AWE Early Literacy Station added to the library.  This touchscreen, all-in-one computer provides computer skills, school readiness, and early learning fun for young children.

The Oswego Public Library is now seeking funds for the second AWE Early Literacy Station to be purchased in 2015.
