Library cards are free! They may be used at any library in Oswego, Lewis, Jefferson or St Lawrence County. Your child must be able to print their first and last name and have a parent’s signature. Come spend some time with Miss Cathryn, Miss Monica, Mister Josh, and Miss Laurie.
Our Children’s Room offers many different weekly activities, including story hours and special events as well. You can learn more about what’s going on each month by viewing the calendar down below! There will always be a printable PDF or image file of the calendar as well available for you, as well as physical copies of it at our library too.
As you can see in the photo to the left, we a wonderful hand-built wooden ship to play on, as well as a lighthouse shelf built into the wall beside it that’s just like our lighthouse in the harbor. There are plenty of board games and other fun activities that you can bring your children in to play with any time the Children’s floor is open.
We hope to see all of you visiting us soon!
