The Friends of the Putnam County Public Library are a group of invested individuals who pay a membership fee and dedicate generous volunteer hours to supporting the library. The Friends of the Library are responsible for the library’s book store, regular book sales and promotions, fundraising events such as Touch-A-Truck, and managing fundraising partnerships such as Kroger Community Rewards.
Joining the Friends of the Library is a wonderful way to support early literacy, equitable access to resources and materials, and fostering a love of learning and literacy community-wide.

The Friends of the Putnam County Library, the Putnam County Library, and Dolly Parton have teamed up to bring the Imagination Library to Putnam County. The Imagination Library is a program started when “Dolly wanted to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and their families. She wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create“ (Parton). The Library and Friends of the Library want to share in Dolly’s dream, by ensuring that every child in Putnam County from birth through age five will have books, his/her own personal books, regardless of the family’s income.
The FOL and the Library partners with other Putnam County organizations, corporate and individual sponsors, and public agencies to fund and run the Imagination Library. When we dream, we dream BIG! Help us keep our Imagination Library dream alive by purchasing books at the Library Book Store, attending fundraising events, making a monetary donation, or sponsoring a child. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a sponsor. We cannot do it alone, but together, we can reach for the stars.
