Quitman Library Connections
National Voter Registration Day is this country’s largest single-day non-partisan voter registration drive, and it happens Tuesday, Sept. 29. The Quitman Public Library is participating in the month-long “Register in September – Vote in November” campaign, and volunteers will be available to assist. Forms are available at the front desk.
September is National Library Card Sign-up Month, so stop in and apply for the smartest card around. Library cards are available for those providing proof of residence in Wood County and photo identification. A guardian must sign for children ages 5-17.
The Pilot Club of Quitman has partnered with Dolly’s Imagination Library, a program which makes it possible for every child from birth to age five to receive one free, age-appropriate book by mail each month. You may enroll your children at no cost if you reside in the following zip codes, 75783, 75410 and 75497. Stop by the library’s front desk to sign up today and have your picture made with the cardboard Dolly cutout.
There is always something to do at the library. Friends of the Library invite the public to join this volunteer group of library supporters at monthly meetings on second Thursdays at noon. Photographers of all levels are invited to the In-Focus Photography Club of East Texas that meets monthly on last Mondays at the library at 5:30 p.m. Free knitting and crochet instruction class meets each Thursday, 2-4 p.m. Students of all ages and skill levels may bring their own supplies and patterns to trade. Wood County Metal Detector Club, led by Jerry Tinney, meets on first Mondays at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s Shamburger Community Room. Whyte Dove Writers’ Club meets monthly on second Tuesdays from 6-8:30 p.m. at the library. Consider joining this distinctive group of local published authors. The Wood County TX Genealogical Society meets on each third Monday at 5 p.m. in the library community room. Follow the society’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/groups/woocotx.
