Build a box city at Oshkosh Public Library


What makes a good city? Community members are invited to answer that question by helping to Build a Box City at the Oshkosh Public Library, July 17-22.

The library will provide boxes of all sizes and plenty of other supplies – the rest is up to the kids, teens and adults who help create the city under the library’s historic Dome. The activity is free and open to all ages during any hours that the library is open.

Think about what a city needs. Skyscrapers, houses, a library or a school? How about a waterpark or a zoo or even a dinosaur exhibit?

“Maybe you want to be a firefighter, an animal doctor or an auto mechanic when you grow up; so let’s build a fire station, a veterinary clinic and a garage,” says librarian Sandy Toland, Coordinator of Volunteers. “We’d love to see families come and build together.”
