Putnam Library Live This Week- October 19th

We have something for everyone this week on Putnam Library Live! Story times for the littles are on their regular Tues/Wed/Sat schedule at 10am. Seminars for adults are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:30, thanks to our partnership with WV It Takes A Village. And this week, tune in for a spooky story read-aloud on Thursday afternoon at 4:00 (this one’s on Instagram, all other events are on Facebook). Join us for PLL all week long!

Eleanor Book Trail

Eleanor Library is offering a book trail outside of their library through the end of October. Stop by any time to read a story as you take a walk in the beautiful weather and crisp fall air.

Virtual Senior Seminars

This Thursday starts our series of virtual seminars for seniors, brought to you by our partners at WV It Takes A Village, aimed to create a kinder, stronger, and healthier community for our senior neighbors. These seminars aren’t just for seniors but are also helpful to anyone who cares for a senior citizen in their life. See the image below for a schedule.
