Putnam County’s Ferst Readers has been providing books for the children of Putnam County and currently has 980+ children enrolled. We work with local schools and organizations to register eligible children and then with your support, we will continue to raise the $36 per year or $3 per month for each child to provide our young readers with a foundation for success by covering the cost of books.
Our annual “Seuss on the Loose” festival is an event we work hard to prepare each year and then enjoy the day with all the children and families that come out for the morning events!
Thanks to you and our generous sponsors and supporters as well as all the businesses and individuals who donated in many different ways Seuss on the Loose was better than ever and we will continue our efforts for childhood literacy and providing books for kids.
Be sure to mark your calendars for next year’s festival on March 7th , 2020.

One of Putnam Ferst Readers's continuing literacy outreach efforts along with the Eatonton-Putnam County Library is creating partnerships with local business/organizations to build and install "little libraries" throughout Putnam County. These mini "take a book/leave a book" stations provide a super-easy way to support reading for everyone and to connect with the community.
We currently have Little Libraries at the following locations and more promised with a 2019 opening.
* Putnam County Oconee Springs Park
* Putnam Christian Outreach
* Crooked Creek Community Association
* Putnam County Health Department
* Eatonton Police Department
* Putnam County Recreation Department
* Plaza Arts Center
* Putnam County Department of Family and Children Services
* Putnam County Center of Central Georgia Technical College
You, employees, friends or fellow organization members can sharpen your carpentry skills by building a library as well as hosting one on your property. It's a "win/win" for your organization and Putnam's citizens.
