Virtual Story Times

Imagine Your Story 2020 Summer Reading Program

Check Out Our Archive of Virtual Story Times and "Library On The Go" Craft Videos

Watch your favorite Putnam County Library System staff read fairy tales, folk tales, myths and legends from around the world.

If you want to follow along with the craft, just be sure to pick up your "Library on the Go" take-and-make craft bags from the library. A themed craft bag will be released on Tuesday of the same week each storytime is released (while supplies last). There are two different crafts for the two age groups (children 0-5 and children 6-11 years old). Each bag contains enough craft supplies to complete one craft. Families with multiple children will want to pick up multiple bags.
