Driving Books Home is a collaborative project brought to the greater Oswego community by the Oswego YMCA, the Oswego City School District, SUNY Oswego, and the Oswego Public Library. While the crux of the program is delivering free books via the iconic bookmobile, the program yields to the more intrinsic needs of our at-risk children.
Driving Books Home utilizes trained volunteers with specialties in literacy and education to provide motivation, encouragement, and guidance in selecting books at an independent reading level. The children are provided opportunities to participate in activities that will enhance their reading experience, comprehension and solidify their reading word inventory.
We are proud to announce that Price Chopper is our latest $5000 Newberry donor!

It is the goal of Driving Books Home to reduce reading regression while fostering a love for reading. During the school year, the program continues through the school district latch key sites and free books are always available at our partner location – the Oswego YMCA.
