New events are coming to Quincy Public Library thanks to a national grant.

Quincy Public Library is one of 79 organizations nationwide to receive the award to host the National Endowment for the Arts "Big Read".
The grant totals $15,000 and will allow the library to provide more than 3,500 free books to local residents along with special events.
Big Read events will include movies, lectures, story time, and book discussions.

"We have a lot of people who come for the programs and they enjoy getting the free books to keep so a lot of people come out for those," said Ruth Cuthbertson, Marketing and Events Librarian.

Activities for all ages will take place from September 13 to October 13, 2018.  For more information on the books selected and activities visit the Quincy Public Library website.
