Birthday Book Program

The Putnam County Library has a Birthday Book Program in which you can celebrate your child's birthday in a special way and help your public library grow. Participation in this program involves a parent or guardian suggesting a title or subject they would like to see added to the collection and making a donation to cover the cost of the book or audio-visual materials. Most children's books will cost between $15.00 and $20.00. Some will be less.

A gift plate will be placed in the front of the book noting the child's name and birth date. The birthday child will have the honor of being the first person to check the item out.

Children enjoy sharing books with their parents, brothers, sisters and friends. They will always have special memories of the book they selected for the library on their birthday. This is an excellent way to remember a birthday and to help our library maintain a good collection.

If you are interested in selecting a title to celebrate a birthday, please stop by the childrens desk and pick up a Birthday Book Program form.
