New Books on CD Arrive at Oswego Public Library

Your tax dollars have been hard at work adding new books on compact disc to the Oswego Public Library collection. In the last two months over 100 CD audio books have made their first bow on the shelves. “We had to move the audio book collection to a new area on the main floor,” said Librarian Edward Elsner. “There were simply too many titles for where we had them shelved.”

All of the audio books are now farther in from the East 2nd Street entrance, near the donation box. Books on cassette and CD are filed by the author’s last name or their nonfiction Dewey Decimal number. Browse until you find a few to try while doing chores, driving, or otherwise occupied. With audio books, you don’t need your eyes or your hands, just your ears!

If you see any you MUST have, call the library at 341-5867 or log on to your library account at NorthCountryLibraries.org to place a hold. We’ll email or call YOU when the CD audio book is returned and ready for you.
