You are invited to join Putnam County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program and attend the fun programs and events we are planning for infants, kids, teens, and adults. This summer’s theme, “Build a Better World,” promotes reading and encourages creative exploration, active skill-building, and critical thinking. Participating in the Summer Reading Program is a fun way to include reading and related activities in summer family time.
The public library cares about your children and has planned programs to keep them reading and learning all summer. Whether you keep track of the amount of time your children spend reading or the number of books they have read this summer, children who join the summer library program keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed.
Sign up for the Summer Reading Program online or in the library on or after May 30. And check back for more Summer Reading information, including a schedule of events, downloadable game sheets, and more!
