Summer reading participants bring a reading log to receive a prize. After the fourth visit, a certificate of completion and free book will be presented to each child. Visit the library, 103 E. Poplar St., or the bookmobile for a record log or download one at www.putnam.lib.in.us.
In addition, students with library fines can read them away this summer through the Read-A-Way Fines program. Those under the age of 18 can check at the children's desk for more information on how to reduce or eliminate fines by reading.
The regular summer programs include Monday Movies at 1 p.m., and Friday Frights at 3 p.m. The Monday movies will be geared towards children of all ages, but those under the age of 8 needs to be accompanied by a guardian. On Fridays, each movie will be geared toward teens between the ages of 11 and 18 years.

The show will begin at 3 p.m. July 21.
