Putnam County’s Ferst Readers provides books for the children of Putnam County and currently has 980+ children enrolled to receive a monthly book. 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 2019 opening.
* Putnam County Oconee Springs Park * Putnam Christian Outreach
* Putnam Department of Family/Children Services * Crooked Creek Community Association
* Putnam County Health Department * Putnam County Recreation Department
* Putnam Center of Central Georgia TechnicalCollege * Plaza Arts Center
* Eatonton Police Department *Twin Bridges Fire Department
**Flat Rock Fire Department (Our Newest Location)
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.
