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!
Edward Elsner, a Librarian at Oswego Public Library, created this wonderful video featuring glass plate photographs by Ella (Crippen) Wheeler. The photographs show Oswego, New York as it was in 1900-1910. The video also features the music of the Heftone Banjo Orchestra playing the 1905 hit, "In My Merry Oldsmobile".

The OCHS journals are currently searchable at NNYLN's database.
