Children’s Book Donations Needed for Little Free Libraries

OSWEGO – The Oswego City-County Youth Bureau is accepting donations of gently-used children’s books for the Little Free Libraries in East, West, Breitbeck and Oak Hill parks.

Little Free Libraries is a nationwide program with a mission to get books into the hands of children and adults, and promote literacy and the love of reading, by building free book exchanges.

“Libraries will be up and running for the season after the snow has melted and libraries are easily and safely accessible,” said youth activities coordinator Kristen Slimmer. “You can visit any library whenever and as many times as you would like. You are free to take books home to enjoy. You are also able to leave any gently-loved and child appropriate books that you no longer care to keep in the library.”

To get the season started, the youth bureau is looking for children’s and family-friendly books in good condition. Donations may be dropped off weekdays at the Youth Bureau office, 70 Bunner St., Oswego.
