The Library serves the informational, educational, and recreational needs of the people of Gadsden County, providing quality service and current information in a comfortable setting. There is a main library plus two separate library branches and a bookmobile. The main library and branches are automated and linked by a local area network. Materials available to circulate include a variety of print formats, video cassettes, and audio cassettes. There are also reference materials in print and on CD- Rom computer programs, as well as magazines, newspapers, and indexed articles on computers for research. Typewriters, computers, (for word processing as well as Internet access), meeting rooms and copiers can be used by the public.
Children's programming includes pre-school story times, after school programs and the summer library program. In addition, for the last four years Outreach Services have been provided, taking the library out to day care centers, schools, camps, the senior center, and the community events. This position is essential because of the County's rural nature, the lack of transportation and the high adult illiteracy rate which combines to create roadblocks for people receiving a library experience. The Quincy library serves as the library to the TCC- Gadsden Center, and houses a literacy program.
