The Oswego Public Library will hold a reading of favorite poems on Thursday, April 24.
The event will begin with Mayor Tom Gillen reading at 1:30 p.m. Let the library know your favorite poem and we’ll print it out and post it to one of the pillars in the main reading room during National Library Week from April 13-19.
People can drop a printed copy off with their name on it and can read it on April 24 or library staff will select from the poems and read them to the audience.
Watch for a video of the poetry reading on the library website at oswegopubliclibrary.org
