Quitman Library Connections
QPL 2023 Summer Reading “Libraries Rock” program has ended, and the library would like to recognize those who helped make it awesome: Rafael Espinoza and the Rockabilly Railroad, Quitman Garden Club, Anita Nance, Virginia Hoffpauir, Eugene Allen, Dale Cummings, Lisa Foster, Faith Sistrunk, Susan Lomanto, Rebekah Yeager, Dance Dimensions, Quitman-Lake Fork Kiwanis, Quitman Sonic, the City of Quitman and Friends of the Quitman Public Library.

July is National Anti-boredom Month, and it was created by Alan Caruba in the 1980s to combat the moping around that seems to happen during the summer after 4th of July festivities and before back-to-school planning happens. This observance encourages everyone to identify what makes us bored and find ways to battle it. The Quitman Public Library is always here to assist you with resources that can help you discover a new talent or develop a new hobby. We also have over 30,000 books and countless e-books for your reading entertainment. Stop by or give us a call.
