Putnam County’s Ferst Readers has been providing books for the children of Putnam County for 15 years and currently has 700+ 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.




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 2018-19 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

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.
