Students whose families don't own a computer can now borrow one from the library to use for homework. Photo by James Wilson :lass of '64 sets up lal ,top lending library for Quincy Hig chool James Wilson Staff Writer To celebrate Quincy High School turning 100, the half-century-old QHS Class of 1964 came together to get the school a birthday gift. On Friday, Oct. 17, Libbie Hopkins-Coleman, of the Class Of '64, presented nine new laptops to the students of QlttS during the school's homecoming assembly. Students can check out the laptops just like library books. The computer-lending library will allow students without computer access at home the same opportunities as those with access. "There are always families that can't afford a computer," Coleman said. "That becomes more of a handicap for those kids." Over a year ago, Coleman approached QHS Principal Sue Segura about her class making a donation to the school to help the students out. Coleman threw the idea out and asked Segura what the school could use. Segura immediately fired back with the computer-lending idea. In the initial letter to invite her class to the 50-year reunion, Coleman mentioned the fundraising effort to make the lending library a reality. Her class responded with support -- and some generous donations. The class met up in August for the 50-year reunion and finished its fundraising efforts through a prize drawing. Members of the class donated items that showed their pride in Quincy. The total amount the class raised was $6,930 -- enough money to purchase the computers. The alumni class and the high school then worked with the tech department of the Plumas Unified School District in choosing the appropriate equipment. After careful consideration, the tech dp:tme-ht settled on HP laptops. The borrowing system will be based on need, said QHS librarian Tracy Kepple. Some students will need use of the laptops longer than others. "Even though nine laptops doesn't sound like that many," commented Kepple, "that's about the number of kids we have here at the school who don't have computer access at home." The new system will frill that void. .B0000nfire celebral on Quincy High School students gather around the bonfire in the parking lot near the school's tennis courts Oct. 16 to celebrate their high school hitting the 100-year mark.
