The Putnam County Public Library’s Outreach van provides free delivery service to residents of Putnam County.

We deliver every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to schools, homeschoolers, nursing homes, daycare centers, home-bound patrons (physically disabled, extended illness or significant transportation problems), and patrons living in remote areas.

When you select books, films, games, and music for our staff to bring to you, we build an outreach profile for you to help us understand your preferences and anticipate what other items you might like in the future.
