How Will Your Life Change?

Libraries Change Lives DeclarationIt's National Library Week, and with a theme of "Lives Change @ Your Library," we want to know: 

What does the library mean to you? How have you used the library for positive change in your life? 

Visit any Rock Island Library this week, and either show your support or share your story by: 

  • Signing the Libraries Change to Life Right to Libraries Declaration on display; 
  • Taking a "selfie" with the Libraries Change Lives write-on/wipe-off thought bubble; 
  • Tweeting your life-changing reason to @RI LIbrary, hashtag #liveschange
  • Commenting on our Facebook page - /RockIslandLibrary
  • Dropping a comment card in any of the YOU ROCK boxes at any Rock Island Library 

And, remember to take advantage of free programs this week - tech topics, gardening, Shakespeare, storytimes, Teen Iron Chef and more.
