Wednesday, Apr. 4, 2019      Wood County Monitor – Quitman TX     
 
    Workforce Solutions of East Texas will conduct a Hiring Fair on Friday, Apr. 5, 2019 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Shamburger Community Room of the Quitman Public Library. Several caregiver positions are open starting at $9 per hour.
  Each year the month of April is set aside as National Poetry Month, inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, and the Quitman Public Library is highlighting this event with a display near the front check-out area. Because poetic fragments have been found on monoliths and rune stones, historians believe that poetry originated from people reciting or singing to remember things – like we still do today.  
  The 2nd Friday Acoustical Music Jam at the Quitman Public Library is Friday, April 12, 2019. Last month, Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and performer Jo-EL Sonnier stopped in to join the jammers. Acoustical musicians of all ages and musical levels are invited to join in from 6 - 9 p.m. in the library’s community room. There will be an open mic set-up for those who wish to perform. Listeners are always welcome.
