About the Library

Established in 1930, The Putnam County Library System has grown to serve a diverse community of more than 70,000 people, providing materials, information, programs, exhibitions, services and educational opportunities in a wide variety of formats. The mission of the Putnam County Public Library is to provide access to the online world, help create young readers, stimulate people’s imagination, provide safe and comfortable real and virtual places to visit, and help citizens stay informed.

We are dedicated to helping patrons of all ages pursue their educational, informational, recreational, and cultural interests in a way that is meaningful to them.

With five locations, PCLS is a hub for community activity in Putnam County.
