“Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every child signs-up for their own library card.
Throughout the school year, public librarians and library staff will assist parents and caregivers with saving hundreds of dollars on educational resources and services for students. From free access to STEAM programs/activities, educational apps, in-person and virtual homework help, technology workshops to the expertise of librarians, a library card is one of the most cost effective back to school supplies available.
How much money can you save? Visit our Library Value Calculator to total your savings.
Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” characters Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep and friends are joining the American Library Association on an adventure to promote the value of a library card as Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chairs.” — http://www.ala.org/news/mediapresscenter/presskits/lcsum

In storytime this week, Mrs. Donovan helped children welcome Spring by sharing stories and songs about wind. One young patron brought her pinwheel to storytime to celebrate this springtime weather occurrence. The Putnam County Library hosts a weekly storytime on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 10am. Everyone is welcome and the program is FREE!
We here at the library have decided that there is just so much great information we want to share with you – the patron- that we have created a library blog. Through this site, we will share upcoming events, newly acquired titles, program recaps,emerging literature and library trends, and any other information that we feel would benefit our users. Let us know what information you want to see here- because this blog is for you!
