Over the last six decades, the Putnam Valley Library has experienced tremendous growth. We have gone from humble beginnings in Mrs. Rhea Johnson's kitchen on Church Road to our own building and community center on Oscawana Lake Road. In 1996, we purchased computers, through a grant, for an in-house circulation system and for patron records. Our objective is to have this system working by mid-1997 ... which will be our 60th anniversary year.
In addition, we will continue to purchase as many new books, videos, magazines, and audio tapes as our budget allows. We will also continue special programs for all patrons.
However, we need your help! Your support in any of the following ways would be extremely appreciated:
The Putnam Valley Library Staff and Board of Trustees thank you for your past support and look forward to serving you in the future.
