5 Million? Really?

Did you know?

5.2 million programs were offered by public libraries in 2016. (Source: Institute of Museum and Library Services 2016 public libraries data.)

That’s a lot of free (or mostly free) entertainment/instruction/information!

No wonder Americans go the library 3 times as often as they go to the movies. For a list of the programs coming up at the Moline Public Library you can click here to see our events calendar.
