Ed Kirkpatrick, Don't Breathe On Me

Don’t Breathe On Me

Chorus:
Wash your hands,
And pass the sanitizer
Wear nitrile gloves,
And give air hugs.
Don’t breathe on me
Don’t breathe on me

I’m not six feet under yet my friend,
And I’m not pushing up daisys.
I stay six feet apart,
But not, from my Katie. (Chorus)

This Covid-19 is making me crazy,
There’s got to be more to life
Than wearing N-95
Am I dreaming this all up (chorus)

Are there more than 25,
Sitting in this small space?
Please don’t sneeze,
Don’t touch your face. (Chorus)

I might be six feet above,
But that’s when I’m happy.
Stay six feet apart
I stay six feet apart

Wash your hands,
And pass the sanitizer.
Wear nitrile gloves,
And give air hugs.
Don’t breathe on me
Don’t breathe on me

The Putnam County Public Library will enter Phase Two of the library’s reopening plan on Monday, June 15. On that date, the library’s staff will return to regular work, the library will resume normal business hours, and limited services will be offered and expanded.

During Phase Two of the library’s reopening, we will continue to offer Curbside Service and Virtual Reference services for your convenience. 

Return To Normal Business Hours

The library will reopen and return to normal business hours on Monday, June 15. Library business hours are:
Monday-Thursday: 9 a.m.-8 p.m.
Friday & Saturday: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Open Areas: Library Lobby & Computer Lab

The library will reopen two areas of the building: the library lobby and the library’s computer lab. The library computer lab is available by appointment. The library lobby is open for materials pick-up, OPAC use, and print/copy/fax services. Please use the Carnegie entrance for computer lab use and the front entrance for library lobby use.

Book Bundles
Excited to pick-up books from the library, but don’t know what you want to read? Never fear! The library’s Youth Services department understands how difficult it can be to choose books for your little ones and are now offering Book Bundles! 

Book Bundles can be collected by subject and by age. A youth librarian will choose materials for your bundle, based on your request, and have them ready for pick-up at the circulation desk or for Curbside Service. 

To add a Book Bundle to your order, please email [email protected] or call 765-653-2755 ext. 7173.

Make & Take Crafts

Each week, the Youth Services staff will prepare a NEW Make & Take Craft kit. These kits can be requested with your Curbside/Pickup order. Visit us each week for a new craft!

Summer Reading Club 

The library’s Summer Reading Club is on! Beginning June 15, the library will host its annual Summer Reading Club.

Reading programs are available for all ages, and there will be prizes awarded to everyone who finishes their challenge!

Learn more about the reading challenges here.

As the library moves through our planned stages of reopening, we will continue to add and expand to our services. Make sure to check back often for updates and announcements. If you have any questions or need help using our services, please call the library at 765-653-2755
