Our Favorite Films of 2014

Author Visiting Oswego

WENDY CORSI STAUB will be at the river's end on Wednesday • March 4 @ 6pm

In her chilling new thriller, The Black Widow, newly divorced Gaby Duran isn’t really expecting to find her soul mate on a dating site like InTune. But she quickly discovers there is much more at stake than her lonely heart. Local singles are going missing after making online connections. And the killer is searching again for the perfect match.

Historic Replica Prints of Oswego

Stop by the Oswego Public Library during our regular hours to enjoy these remade treasures. Allen Bjorkman’s Fenix Art Studio located in the Picture Connection has crafted each image. “These are better than the originals in many respects,” said Librarian Edward Elsner upon viewing the exhibit. Fenix Art Studios also sells ABstracts: Images of Thoughts and Renaissance replica prints. All are available for sale at the Picture Connection and Lakeside Artisans.

Governor Again Proposes Library Funding Below Legal Level

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. New York State Education Law requires library aid for FY 2015-2016 to be $102.6M. This figure is based on the most recent census data.

Send Us Your Summer Oswego Pics

Fun at lessons, Gallagher Pool

Dylan and Wesley at the City Pool

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.
