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.

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.

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.
