Friends Of The Library

Friends Of The Library

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.

Support The Library

Kroger Community Rewards

The best part about looking at a Kroger receipt, other than fuel points, is seeing that it supports the Putnam County Public Library. What does the bottom of your Kroger receipt say? If it says nothing, then you are leaving dollars behind that would help support Library programming. Register your Kroger Plus card now!
