With wonderful tracery and depth, the art of Sandy Clift is on display until April on the lowest level of the Oswego Public Library. Her unique work includes many fine details and expands in one's mind the longer it is enjoyed. She recently exhibited at the River Walk Artists First Annual National and International Juried Exhibition in East Grand Forks, Minnesota.

Held over into February due to popular demand, you have several weeks left to catch these scintillating photographs from the land of fire and ice. While Greenland is mostly glaciers, Iceland is active volcanoes mixed with ice and amazing scenery. The capital of Reykjavik is home to three quarters of Iceland's people and heated entirely by geothermal energy! Janice Chipman's photos capture the color and vistas of Iceland including the puffins and an ethereal Icelandic horse. Stop in to the lowest level of the Oswego Public Library any day and enjoy them before they're gone. The Library closes at 8 PM Monday through Thursday and at 5 PM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
This wonderful photograph is local. To see Iceland, you'll have to visit the Library.
Oswego County Today has compiled a great list of news from 2013.
It's been a busy and full year at the Oswego Public Library. Nice to see that we are on the Digital Literacy in New York website for our Library Learning Center and classes. Our Seaway Trail sign is finally installed near the main East 2nd Street entrance. All of the signs are viewable at www.seawaytrail.com/storytellersigns/ We also enjoy our Energy Challenge Display very much as Cortland and Oswego battle to save money and conserve power.
Thank you for all your support and for everyone who's been here in 2013!
