Just try to get on a plane with a name misspelled on the boarding pass...... just for kicks, you might try it. Won't get you anywhere. That is why those two words were capitalized.

Well, that was just an example of the fact that it's all outdated. The building has outlived it's lifespan, was really the point I was making. Any "improvements" are just stuck on with duct tape and staple guns (or so it seems).

It's going to be interesting when the pot "cultivation centers" get up and running. We'll be arresting people for doing something themselves that when licensed by the state is legal. Kinda like arresting bars for little back-room poker tournaments while state-sanctioned casinos rake in millions. I can't distill my own vodka for my own use in Illinois without paying the state an $1800…

Quincy Public Library celebrates 125 years of community service

1 month, 2 weeks ago from Quincy Public Library

The community is invited to help celebrate

Anniversary events will kick off on June 24, at QPL, 526 Jersey Street, with a brief presentation by Iris Nelson, Librarian and local historian, on the roots of our community library, followed by a panel discussion by Chuck Scholz, Dwain Preston, Mary Griffith and Martha Ward, of personal memories of visits to the old library building. Following the panel discussion, there will be a walking tour to and through the old library building.

Quincy residents are also asked to share their favorite memories of the Library.  A "Scribble Wall" will be available for people to post their thoughts of the library.  Residents may also choose to archive their memories on video. QPL staff will be available in the South Study Room to record residents as they describe their favorite Library memories.
Historic photos and facts will be on display in the Library lobby. Residents may also peruse the wish list items to benefit the Library on the Giving Tree, also on display in the Library lobby. Enjoy refreshments and receive a small memento.

In honor of the 125th anniversary, QPL will offer reduced fees on all fines incurred before June 24, 2014.  Pay only 25 cents for each $1 of fines incurred.  Visit the CHECK OUT HERE desk to learn more about reduced fines.

The Quincy Free Public Library opened on June 24, 1889 in the building at the corner of 4th and Maine Streets. Sarah Denman and Lorenzo Bull along with other public-spirited citizens laid the foundation for the Free Public Library, which made services available to all Quincy residents.  Prior to that time, library services were only available by subscription.

Today, Quincy Public Library continues the tradition of providing vital education services that are available without charge to all in our community.   Providing resources to improve job skills, to increase digital literacy, and to teach pre-reading skills, are just a few of the ways QPL responds to the needs of the Quincy community. A full list of services and classes is available on the Library website at quincylibrary.org.

For more information on Quincy Public Library's 125th Anniversary, please call the Library at 223-1309.
