GIVE BACK Charity Profile: Quincy Public Library

Quincy Public Library Donation | Hansen-Spear Funeral Home - Quincy, Illinois

Ever since I was a kid I always loved the public library.  It is an awesome community resource that provides both education and entertainment to people of all ages for little to no cost.  While most of the library’s expenses are covered by tax dollars, extra programs are funded through private donations.

As always, if you have a local charity you would like to suggest for our GIVE BACK Donation Program, please email Will Spear ( with your suggestions.

How can people get involved or support the Quincy Public Library?

The Library belongs to everyone in the community and it improves with use and personal engagement.  The Library is primarily funded by property taxes and general funds from the city, so people can let their representatives know how much the Library means to them.  Grants, donations and partnerships support special projects and needs beyond the normal budget, so they are important too!
