It’s RETURN BORROWED BOOKS WEEK!

Good news all you would-be spring cleaners!

That extra push you needed to start clearing all the winter debris from your house (otherwise known as spring cleaning) is here, even though it in no way resembles spring outside (yet, the blogger added hopefully). National RETURN BORROWED BOOKS week is the perfect time to gather up the books piled up around the house and return them to your friend, your father-in-law, your LIBRARY, wherever.

There is no time like the present!

So… You know… Gather ’em up. And if, in your gathering, you happen to find a whole bunch of books in your house that helped to get you through the winter but that you no longer need or want you can bring those to the library as well. Donations are always welcome!

We get by with a little help from our friends

Friends of Libraries groups have their very own national week of celebration!

United for Libraries will coordinate the 13th annual National Friends of Libraries Week Oct. 21-27, 2018.

FriendsWe just wanted to take a moment to thank the Friends of the Moline Public Library. Their volunteer-run book store and fundraisers provide invaluable supplemental funding for the library and its programs. Their time and effort have translated to hundreds of thousands of dollars that the library was able to use to give back to the community.

If you want to support the Friends and the Moline Public Library stop by during National Friends of Libraries Week and check out their Silent Auction and Raffle that’s happening in the lobby.

And while your at it you might as well vote while your here!
