The Putnam County Public Library has a busy beginning to this month with two weeks full of activities.
Today at 4 p.m., the library will be holding "Teen Time: Tie Dye" for area adolescents. The program requires registrations which can be made with Cortina at 653-2755 ex 121.
"Summer Storytime" will be held on Thursday. "Toddler Time" will begin at 10 a.m. for children 18 months--3 years old accompanied by a guardian. Story time for 3--7 years old children will begin at 11 a.m. The events will be concluded with "Tween Time" at 4 p.m. for those ages 8 -- 12.
From 9:30--11:30 a.m. on Friday, "Longfellow's Whales Tales" -- a water safety program presented by the American Red Cross -- will be open for SPARK participants and all children who want to attend.
Next week's events will begin with the Midday Matinee on Monday, July 11 at noon. Library staff have described Monday's film as "an ecological drama/documentary filmed throughout the globe. Part thriller, part meditation on the vanishing wonders of the sub-aquatic worlds. A beautiful film that shows a variety of images of undersea creatures -- considered both friend and foe."
From 3--5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12, Barbara Fuson will hold the second of her ongoing series of watercolor classes.
Wednesday, July 13 will be a busy day for the library. At 3 p.m., the Indiana Wild! program will be presented with host Alligator Aaron and a whole host of exotic animals from around the world. At 4:30 that evening the Brick Club will be meeting to have fun and prepare for the upcoming Brick Mania competition.
