Our Current Artist, Judy Malone

Judy moved to Oswego from Carthage in 1989 to attend SUNY Oswego.  She graduated with a BFA and a graphic design degree and decided to stay.
Lighthouse with Boat
In 2010 Judy attended summer oil painting classes taught by Patricia Carson.  She instructed her on the many technical aspects of oil painting and encouraged her to paint in her own style.  Since then Judy has continued to enjoy and express herself with this medium.  Her favorite subject matter is wildlife, nature, and lighthouses.

Donations Sought

Welcome back to school! We have been working hard at the Oswego Public Library to rebuild our young adult collection. Many books and graphic novels were taken and never returned last school year. Please consider donating your copy of these titles to the Oswego Public Library for everyone to enjoy. Thank you!

We are also happy to take donations of DVDs, Blu-rays, manga, paperback or hardcover comic books, and guitar magazines.

Stop in any time to enjoy our magazines. Computer access, including Wifi, requires a library card. Getting a card is free although you need a parent or guardian to sign you up if you are under 18. There are now USB charging ports near all of the tables on both the Main and Upper Levels.
