Founded by Gerrit Smith in a July 17, 1853 letter, the library was built in the grand style of Norman castles during 1855 & 1856, and first opened to the public on June 14, 1857. The Oswego Public Library underwent a $6 million renovation from 2004-2008 and has continued serving all area residents from the Castle on the Hill. The Oswego Public Library is also a national historic landmark and America’s oldest public library still in its original building.

Our library is able to operate with the support of our local Friends of the Library. They are also on Facebook.

We also have a local Bookmobile that brings books around to our local community in the summer; you can learn all about them here.
