It’s time again for the One Book, One Putnam 2019 County Wide Read! Join us this January and February as we read and discuss Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. It’s a story about a girl who adopts a stray dog and how that dog changes her life. Books, audiobooks, and DVDs (of the movie adaptation) are available now at all five Putnam County Library System branches. They are also available for sale locally at Nathan Clifton’s Marketplace in Downtown Palatka.
The OBOP Committee is hosting an official Kick-Off on Thursday, January 10 at 5:30pm at the Palatka Golf Course. Refreshments will be provided (catered by the Sunrise Rotary Club of Palatka). Special guests include Gabe the Bostwick Library Dog and local therapy dog Gus (with Steve Overturf and Cheryl Meeks). More library book discussions, movie screenings, contests, and special guests to be announced soon*. This is a family-friendly title.
