Reading with Friends! Leyendo con Amigos!

We enjoyed English and Spanish readings of The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle today.  After the readings, children made pipe cleaner caterpillars and other creatures with help from the SUNY Oswego students.  A huge thank you to the Latino Student Union for sharing their time and talents with us!

Anyone interested in reading books in Spanish may check out material from the Oswego Public Library.  Picture books are shelved with the nonfiction under JUV 468.  Teen and adult novels are shelved in the nonfiction under 468.  There are also some large print titles, same number, in the main reading room.  Searching the catalog at for Spanish Bilingual material will find books with the text written in both English and Spanish.

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.
