Oswego Bookmobile season starts July 5

OSWEGO — Oswego Bookmobile will be driving books home to Oswego neighborhoods this summer for the 11th season beginning on Monday, July 5 and running through Friday, Aug. 20.

The summer reading theme for 2021 is Tails & Tales. Each week will have a theme organized around a weekly book choice. The weekly themes this summer are:

Week 1: The Better to Read You My Dear

Week 2: Fur, Feathers, and Scales “Oh My!”

Week 3: Hopping Into a Great Tale

Week 4: In an Ocean Far, Far Away

Week 5: Read, Connect, Protect

Week 6: Man’s Best Friend

Week 7: There’s No Place Like Home

Children and youth up to age 18 are invited to visit the bookmobile once a week at any of the scheduled stops and select a free book, healthy snack, and a “grab and go” STEAM activity bag.

With the support of a Youth Development Program grant from Oswego City County Youth Bureau, Oswego Bookmobile is able to provide STEAM “grab and go” bags with activities for the whole family.

The stops for the 2021 season will be:


9 to 11 a.m. — Charles E. Riley Elementary School

12:30 to 2:30 p.m. — East Park/Washington Square Park


9 to 11 a.m. — Kingsford Park Elementary School

12:30 to 2:30 p.m. — West Park/Franklin Square Park


9 to 11 a.m. — Fitzhugh Park School

12:30 to 1:15 p.m. — Hill Top Trailer Park

1:30 to 2:15 p.m. — Hill Crest Trailer Park


9 to 9:45 a.m. — Champlain Commons

Participants at the stops this year will find books to interest all ages and reading levels from “read to me” to “ I can read it myself!”

Oswego Bookmobile has the following community partners: Oswego City School District, Oswego Public Library, and SUNY Oswego, for their in-kind support, and community donors for the financial support so critical to keeping the Driving Books Home-Oswego Bookmobile program rolling into Oswego neighborhoods when school is out.
