How your donations help

Throughout the library's history, donations from the public have helped the Oshkosh Public Library rise to a level of excellence that cannot be achieved through tax funding alone. Donations to the library have helped to:

  • Purchase best-seller books and other materials.
  • Bring authors into Oshkosh’s elementary schools for programs that educate and inspire students to try writing and illustrating.
  • Set up the TeenZone area, build teen reading collections and offer author, technology and art programs for teens.
  • Collect and publish digital collections of photos and community information that preserve Oshkosh history.
  • Establish outstanding genealogy resources and research assistance.
