Here at Quad Cities Mom, we couldn’t live without our local libraries! They give us and our families a safe place to learn and connect through daily storytimes, arts and crafts, movie nights and so much more. Libraries are the perfect play-date meet-up spot or rainy day activity. Check out our calendar for all our local library crafts, storytimes, and family-fun events!

Rock Island Public Library

Let’s go to the library! Begin at the Rock Island Public Library for great family fun. You’ll find print, audio, and video resources and services for ages birth to 18, and lots of free library events to help families play, learn, and grow together. Families can also check out Library of Things materials, and sign up for reading challenges, including the library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading program. The Library2Go bookmobile and library online services bring the library to you. Rock Island Library cardholders can use age-based eBooks and audiobooks, live homework help, and online encyclopedias to support at-home reading and learning.

Rock Island Library cards are available at no charge to residents of Rock Island and the Milan-Blackhawk Area Public District, and our fine-free policy means that Rock Island cardholders do not pay late fees on most items. We also offer the “My First Library card” to introduce young children to the lifetime joys of library membership.
