Or tea… or hot chocolate… or whatever. The cafe is right there.
Part of our ongoing Noonday Program Series.
Today is the day that everyone everywhere is reminded and encouraged to create a backup copy of all that digital information that you can’t live without, from tax records to pictures of the grandkids. You can go to the official website for more information.
What does this have to do with Moline Library? Nothing. We just think that it’s a really good idea and we like to look out for folks. May your digital information last forever (but we’d back it up just in case).

According to The Tolkien Society, Sauron, the evil Lord of the Rings, was finally defeated on March 25. To celebrate this momentous occasion in fantasy literature (and later, fantasy film) March 25 was declared, by the people who declare such things, Tolkien Reading Day!
So stop into the Moline Library and grab a Tolkien book and find a comfy chair. It doesn’t have to be the LOTR either – The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, The Children of Hurin, The Book of Lost Tales, whatever scratches the Middle-Earth itch.
First meeting is coming up next week! Stop by the 2nd floor reference desk or call us at 309-524-2470 for more information. Books and space are limited.
