Collage of three Rock Island Library buildings

The Rock Island Library wants your input for a master building study of our three locations. Please attend one of our two public Community Forums and share your ideas with veteran library planner George Lawson on what you want from our public buildings and services! All three buildings will be included in the study. 

Community Forums at 6:30 pm on Monday, Nov. 24 and at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, Nov. 25 at the Main Library.

See current issue of our eNewsletter for more information.
