WE aRE CURRENTLY CLOSED


As we prepare to move to our new building, the library is closed

  1. The library closed on January 15th, and will not re-open until we are in the new building. At this time we do not have a date, but we expect it to be in mid-March.
  2. While we are closed we will not be sending any items out to fulfill holds, and we will not be accepting any materials returned in the book drop or in the building.
  3. Please visit our neighbor libraries while we are closed! You can use the services at any of the other Illinois Quad City libraries until we re-open.
  4. Thank you for your understanding and support! We will see you in the new building!
