Oswego Bookmobile would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the students of Master Pryor’s Taekwando America.

They raised $3,310 to benefit Oswego Bookmobile’s seven week summer literacy program in Oswego. Thank you to their parents, family, and friends that contributed so generously to their efforts.

Our thanks also go out to Master Pryor and Mrs. Pryor for the generous donation of the boards used in the Break A Thon as well as prizes awarded to the students for their fundraising efforts, a total value of $1,000.

On July 2, 2018, Oswego Bookmobile will launch the eighth season of Driving Books Home; a seven week summer literacy program in the city of Oswego developed to help combat summer reading slide. Empowering children to be readers, Oswego Bookmobile drives free books and snacks to the neighborhoods and parks where our children live and play. Guided by literacy specialists, children identify their independent reading level and choose a book they want to read. Children also participate in engaging activities that help keep them reading all summer.

For nearly 20 years, Master Pryor’s Taekwondo has been developing and perfecting a Martial Arts program that enhances the lives of people of all ages from the tiniest of tigers at preschool ages to seniors who still love to kick and everyone in between. Master Pryor’s Taekwondo instills the basic tenet of respect for oneself and others as well as kindness as a way of life. Through these philosophies, they are able to show children and adults alike how to be community heroes and leaders in everyday life. With rank comes responsibility, and to be a black belt is more than just kicking and punching, it’s also to be a good person.
