Oswego Bookmobile brings its summer literacy program to neighborhoods in partnership with Oswego City School District, Oswego Public Library, Little Lukes, and SUNY Oswego.
Oswego Bookmobile is able to offer its literacy program thanks to a group of dedicated volunteers and with funding from many grant giving organizations, local businesses, corporate donors, and donations from citizens who support literacy in our community.
