Quitman Library Connections

Posted

The Quitman Public Library has reopened this week and will provide services in accordance with current state guidelines. Social distancing and wearing protective masks are strongly encouraged. Patrons will be allowed inside the building, but the library will be operating at a 25% maximum capacity until further mandated. 

During the hiatus, all patron areas have been sanitized. Also, any fines incurred are being wiped from the books – even books that were due months ago will have fines forgiven. 

All library programs are suspended until further notice. Our children’s program coordinator has announced that the 2020 Summer Reading program is still planned for June, but activities have been modified for outdoors at Gov. Jim Hogg City Park. A schedule will be announced soon.

The online Tumble Book Library is available for our youngest readers. The Tumble Book database is easy to use and features unlimited access from your device. Check our website home page for user and password information. 

Patron cards are available for those who provide photo identification and proof of residence in Wood County. A guardian must sign for children ages 5-17. Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Keep current at www.facebook.com/quitmanpubliclibrary and visit the library’s website at www.quitmanlibrary.org. Wi-Fi is available 24/7. Download the OverDrive® app to connect to our library’s vast collection of eBooks, audiobooks and streaming video.
