Founded by Gerrit Smith in a July 17, 1853 letter, the library was built in the grand style of Norman castles during 1855 & 1856. The library first opened to the public on June 14, 1857. The Oswego Public Library underwent a six-million-dollar renovation from 2004-2008 while continuously serving all area residents. The Oswego Public Library is 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.
