OSWEGO – Oswego Bookmobile – Driving Books Home, thanks Entergy for its recent donation of $5,000 to support its literacy program.
Every summer, during the months of July and August, the bookmobile rolls into Oswego neighborhoods to promote reading during summer vacation.
At every stop, the bookmobile gives a free book and a snack to each child under the age of 18 in the Oswego community.
Literacy specialists, a pre-k specialist from Little Lukes, an AmeriCorps volunteer, a SUNY Oswego graduate assistant, and volunteers help children select books at their independent reading level, books that children can keep to build their own personal library of favorite reads.
The bookmobile also attends Movie in the Park nights, sponsored by Oswego County Federal Credit Union, and gives free books to children before the movies start.
In addition, the bookmobile parks at Oswego Farmers’ Market three times in the summer to distribute books.
The bookmobile is grateful to Entergy for this $5,000 donation and for all of its past contributions.
The bookmobile also expresses its appreciation to the partners: Oswego City School District, SUNY Oswego, Oswego Public Library, Little Lukes and to all of our individual, corporate and nonprofit donors who make Oswego Bookmobile possible.
Oswego Bookmobile is led by a dedicated volunteer steering committee that oversees development, delivery and funding of all Oswego Bookmobile programming.
