 How to Renew




Rock Island Library locations will be closed Thursday, Nov. 26 and Friday, Nov. 27 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

We thank you for your support and use of libraries over the past year, and hope you all have opportunities to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends. We return to normal hours on Saturday, so stop by and see us! (And of  course, you can continue to use our website, Internet tools, and downloadable resources while our physical locations are closed.) 

Did you miss a Frieze Lecture? See them on YouTube

Thanks to the Augustana College video team, you can view this year's Frieze Lectures on You Tube. Follow the links below to view lectures in their entirety. This year's series, co-presented with Augustana College, used the common theme of 1915: A Banner Year, and then springboarded from there to examine how current events of 100 years can still affect us today. 

Kaftka's Metamporphosis, 100 years later, with Dr. Lisa Seidlitz - Originally presented Oct. 27

Birth of a Nation lecture with Dr. Christopher Whitt - Originally presented Nov. 03

Robert Frost & TS Eliot: Country Mouse/City Mouse lecture with Farah Marklevits - Originally presented Nov. 10 

Our thanks to Augustana College for their partnership on this 18-year series, and to participating faculty. Mark your calendars for the 2nd week of October for a new set of lectures.
