1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless.
Read any book to your baby, infant and/or toddler.
The goal is to read 1,000 books before your
precious one starts kindergarten. Pick up a reading
journal at the Putnam Public Library, and every time your
child reaches the goal of 100 books he/she will receive
a FREE book!
The library offers a full collection of books, magazines, DVDs, videos
and books on CD for children.
The Children's Room has two computers designed especially for Pre-K
to third grade users. These durable, child-friendly computers are loaded
with more than forty top-rated developmental software titles
in a full range of curriculum areas such as reading, writing,
phonics and more. The purchase of the Early Literacy
Stations was made possible by a generous donation
from the Praxair Foundation.
During the school year two story hours are offered for
preschool children (3-5). The under 3 group is welcome at our
program, Tina’s Tiny Tots. Preschool story time meets
Tuesday at 4 pm and Thursday at 11:15 am and requires
registration. Tina's Tiny Tots meets at 11:15 am
on Friday in the Community Room on the lower level
of the Library during the school year. Unfortunately
the lower level is not handicap accessible,
so if there is a need the program can be easily moved
to the main level. Please call to request this change.
No registration is needed for Tina's Tiny Tots.
