Quitman Library Connections
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.
Friends of the Quitman Public Library will hold its last meeting of the season on Tuesday, May 11 at noon in the Shamburger Community Room. It is an active group of volunteers dedicated to the growth and improvement of the library.
