Library Notes

Wood County Democrat – Wood County, TX

Library Notes by Delene H. Allen

To begin the New Year right, the Quitman Public Library has updated all patron computers and has added two new stations. The library’s high-speed Internet is maintained and provided by Peoples Telephone; computer upgrades are made possible by Bobby Gray, owner of Hog Computer.

January is National “Get Organized” Month, and the Quitman Public Library has a media display filled with ideas to help you clear, or at least control, clutter for the New Year. If your resolution is to exercise, diet, or just be a better person, the library is the place to find the information and books you need to be successful. This special display is located near the check-out area.

Regular library hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. For more information about the library, please call 903-763-4191 or visit our website at www.quitmanlibrary.org.

The Quitman Public Library Advisory Board will meet Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. in the Shamburger Community Room. Among the items on the agenda will be updating the library’s media policy. The public is always welcome to attend advisory board meetings.
