September 2014 - Quitman Public Library News  

Last September, I wrote in my newsletter that Quitman Public Library  had 5,891 patrons.  Now, we have 6,310 patrons! That’s incredible patronage for our library, and it says a lot about our community!  Thanks to our software management system, Biblionix, my staff and I are able to keep track of everyone and everything. Actually, patrons can now their own renewals, requests, holds and due dates by signing up for our email and text alerts.  Stop by the front desk and register for your alert -- and you may never have another overdue book!

While I was looking at our statistics and numbers, I noticed that our holdings total 29,429 items that have a retail value of $596,161.74.  Again, that’s mind-boggling.  I’m so proud of our library and of our FOL supporters.

Mallory Clark recently resigned her position in order to continue her studies in medical school. She will be missed, but we all wish her well. Filling her postion is Jessica King, who has been a long-time volunteer with children’s activities. Jessica studied at ETBU, and is a valuable addition to our staff.
