At our regular programming stops, our dedicated staff helps children identify their reading level and find books that excite them at their reading level.

Children receive a free book and a healthy snack at each visit.

Oswego Bookmobile also gives a free gently loved book to children who visit during our special event appearances at Oswego Farmers’ Market, Harborfest Children’s Park and Movies in the Park nights.

Oswego Bookmobile is in need of new and “like new” children’s books.

We invite you to bring your book donations to our Giving Day Book Drive on May 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at St Joseph’s Church Hall, 240 W. First St.
