Friends Foundation Members

The Friends is a volunteer group founded in 1990 and dedicated to supporting the Moline Public Library in order to enhance the services provided to library patrons.

We are dedicated to enhancing the Library services as it faces budgetary challenges and the technological demands of this century. We are funded through our membership dues, magazine sales, book sales, and other fund raising events. Your dues will ensure that the Friends can help the Moline Public Library continue to be one of our community’s finest resources.
The funds are used for materials, equipment, and services that the library would not otherwise be able to provide.

Anyone can be a Friend. If you are interested in joining us, please print and complete the membership form (PDF) and mail it today. We need your help.
