LOCAL/STATE NOTICES


The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is the replacement program to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices. More information can be found here.

Fire Season & Other Disaster Preparedness: Listos CA offers several disaster preparedness toolkits in a variety of languages - please check them out and get prepared before disaster strikes. You can check out your air quality here or here. Please also look at the County's Office of Emergency Services webpage for more information about how the county - and you - can prepare for emergencies. Firewise has plenty of resources for you and your community too. Virginia Tech’s Recovery Effort After Adult and Child Trauma (R.E.A.A.C.T.) Team created a helpful Guide to Fire Safety, Prevention, and Recovery. (Please note some resources mentioned in the document are Virginia-based only.) Also check out resources through Plumas County Fire Safe Council, the California Dept of Forestry and Fire Protection, and CalFire's Ready for Wildfire. CalOES offers MyHazards, a tool to discover hazards in your area (earthquake, flood, fire, and tsunami) and learn steps to reduce personal risk, and here's a link on how to prepare and deal with pets for disasters like wildfires. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has a disaster checklist here. For one of our 2021 SRP virtual programs we also did a skit with Owlbert and Scared Squirrel about wildfire prevention.

Freeing Your Life with Words: A Workshop with Susan Wooldridge

Saturday April 29, 2023
from 11am-3pm

in the Meeting Room at Quincy Library

Join us at a workshop that will make you feel excited about language and self-expression in both poetry and prose. First we’ll gather (and steal) words from a scattering of books and create a group word pool. Through play, using word tickets and dictionary pages as well as our own gathering of words, we will write about who we are, where we come from and where we’re going. We will welcome both laughter and tears. Sharing work is always optional.

This event is supported in part by Poets & Writers and the Quincy Friends of the Library.
