Quitman Library Connections


August is National Golf Month, so let your first swing be by the Quitman Public Library to check out our large collection of some of the best books on golf.  

  Quitman Public Library joins libraries across the country to remind parents that the most important school supply of all is a library card! Patron cards are available for those residents who can provide proof of residence in Wood County and photo identification.  A guardian must sign for children ages 5 - 17.
