Members of the Children's Board of Oswego, Inc. recently visited Oswego Health’s Maternity Center to donate baby books.

The local organization’s generous donation allows each family to go home with a new book, to encourage lifelong reading. The Children’s Board donated books in both English and Spanish as part of an arts and culture initiative. The Children's Board, originally founded 80 years ago, is a community organization dedicated to enhancing the physical, emotional, and cultural well-being of the children of Oswego County.
