  Quitman Public Library staff and volunteers would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! The library will be closed Thursday, Dec. 24 and Friday, Dec. 25, 2018 for the Christmas holiday. Check out our holiday collection of books for pleasure reading, movies with a festive theme, and books with recipe and decorating ideas to make Christmas extra special.
