Everybody needs a friend!

Welcome to National Friends of Libraries Week!

As a thank you for all you do all Friends of Libraries can read this blog free of charge for the whole week!

FotMPLSeriously though, if you enjoy programming at your local library (or just your library in general) thank a Friend today. Friends groups across the country help to keep their libraries going. The people that are part of these groups have made a commitment to helping their libraries by volunteering their valuable time and energy to raise funds that help make library programming and services possible. Since their founding in 1990, the Friends of the Moline Public Library have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from dues, fundraisers and sales from the Friend’s Book Store (located right by the new material shelves in the library) and fund many of the programs that the library puts on for the public, as well as helping to provide other services and equipment the library needs. They are an invaluable resource and greatly appreciated! We couldn’t do it without you! Thank you Friends!

If you are interested in becoming a Friend of the Moline Public Library and/or volunteering in the Friend’s Book Store please call (309) 524-2470 or stop by the library for more information.

“I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture, and our concern for the future, can all be tested by how well we support our libraries.”     – Carl Sagan; astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and all-around smart guy
