 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 when 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 three 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) with the Tuesday at 4 pm being open to 
multi-age families.  The under 3 group is welcome at our
 Friday and Saturday program, Tina’s Tiny Tots.
   Preschool story time  meets Tuesday at 4 pm
and Thursday at 11 am . Tina's Tiny Tots meets at 11 am
on Friday and Saturday mornings 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.
  Please call 963-6826 to register for Preschool 
story time and check out our Event Calendar for more programs.
Read to Tattle and Sleepy Tales with Zoda are monthly programs
with our dog friends.   Tattle and Zoda are gentle dogs
 with therapy training who come in to the library to listen
 to children read.  Children sign up for 15 minutes at a time
and after their session they can give the dog a supervised snack.
  Fun for child as well as dog!
