QUINCY — The Quincy Public Library began applying for grants in October 2021 and kicked off a donor development fundraising campaign with hopes to raise approximately $400,000 to fund a new mobile library. The Rotary Club of Quincy aided in bringing the library closer to that goal by donating $10,000 on July 26.

The mobile library will feature shelves full of the most popular current materials, high-speed Internet and other features. It will enable the library to host classes and events such as story times, digital literacy classes and professional development workshops of different sizes. The mobile library will help the Quincy Public Library create community, bridge technology gaps, reinforce education and create connections for the people of Quincy. 

To learn more about the project or donate, call 217-223-1309.
