Are you bored, on edge, or in need of some distraction from the day’s cares?
The Quincy Friends of the Plumas County Library has the answer for you: Free books!
Yes, we said FREE!
For the past several weeks the Friends of the Library has been trying to find a way to contribute to our community during these difficult times. We don’t have food or clothes to give away, but we DO have BOOKS.
We invite everyone in the community to stop by the Plumas County Library at 445 Jackson St. in Quincy anytime from Wednesday, Aug. 2 through Tuesday, Sept. 7. During that time, you can help yourself to any of the books displayed on the library porch.
Offerings will run the gamut from fiction to non-fiction to children’s books. These books are yours to keep. When finished, we want you to pass them on to your family or friends.
Books are a magic portal to new experiences and new knowledge. Traveling to these new worlds is important at any time but especially so now, when so many of us need a respite from anxiety and loss.
Normally at this time of year, we’d be doing a book sale to raise money for the many library programs that the Friends of the Library supports. But right now, giving things away, rather than selling them, seems to be the right thing to do.
So stop by the library porch sometime between Aug. 25 and Sept. 7. We can’t solve the world’s problems, but we can offer a little distraction from them.
Please be aware that under current conditions, we cannot accept book donations now or in the immediate future. We thank you for your cooperation and look forward to seeing you on the library porch.
