Summer Reading

2018 Summer Reading

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, “Libraries Rock!,” 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.
