Summer Reading Programs for the Week of June 5, 2017

Lunch at the Putnam County Library

Learning and good nutrition doesn’t end when school lets out! The Putnam County Library is offering free meals for anyone between the ages of 0 and 18 every Monday, Thursday, and Friday at 11 a.m. during the months of June and July as part of our Summer Reading Program.

This program helps provide nutritious meals to children so they are better fueled with healthy food to learn and grow. As a requirement of participation, food must be consumed on site. This program is done in partnership with the Putnam County School System and made possible by the TN Department of Human Services through the USDA Summer Meals Program.

The storytelling possibilities are endless with this creative coding app. This program is appropriate for children ages 5-8. Family participation encouraged.

Join us this Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. as the Science Guys show kids how science builds a better world! Kids will use pulleys, defy gravity, have a tug-o-war, and launch a catapult!
