Closing Alert from for duration of the governor’s stay-at-home order.
In line with the decisions made in our community to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the Moline Public Library is closed through the end of April.
The health and safety of our library patrons and staff is our biggest concern and the decision to close was made in accordance with the local, state, and national recommendations.
All items currently checked out will have their due date extended to May 1. No late fees will be assessed during our closure. If you wish to return items before then, the drive up book return will be available.
Moline cardholders whose accounts are set to expire in March and April will have their expiration dates extended.
Due to the suspension of delivery services between libraries, cardholders will not be able to place holds in the PrairieCat Catalog at this time. Patrons with any current pending holds will be handled after that service resumes. Holds that have arrived, but have not been picked up, will be available when the library reopens.
We invite you to visit our web site frequently for updates and to use many of our online services with your Moline Public Library Card:
- OverDrive (eBooks, eAudiobooks, videos) – OverDrive services will be made available to expired card holders and patrons with fines/fees over the limit
- Axis360 (eBooks, eAudiobooks)
- Hoopla (eBooks, eAudiobooks, music, comics, TV shows)
- Tumble Books – Interactive ebooks for children
- Tutor.com (tutoring for K-12 and adult learners, college entrance exam assistance)
- And many more
Many of these services can also accessed by downloading our app MPLToGo.
Beginning Thursday, April 2 the Library’s Information and Reference desk will be available to answer questions by phone. This service will be available Monday through Friday, from 9am to 3pm. Please be aware that, due to limited resources and staff, responses to more complex or in depth questions may take up to 48 hours.
Updates on library services will continue to be sent through our social media outlets.
