Davenport Public Library is offering the citizens many ways to get involved in the new building. First we offered you the chance to help with funding. OK it is not too late to help with that if you are still interested. Money is always accepted!
We also offered opportunities to view and comment on the building design.
Next we had a tree planting ceremony and bookmark signing to allow you to be part of the ground breaking.
Now you have a chance to get involved in the construction process. You can sign a beam that will eventually become part of the entrance to the library. Once you put your name on the beam that looks similar to this one, it will be there as long as the building stands. Every time you walk through the front door, you will know this library belongs to you because your name is there. How many other libraries can you say have your name written on the structure?Â Not only that, this is totallyÂ legal!
So take a few minutes on Saturday, September 12, 2009 from 12:00 pm (noon) until 2:00 pm and come sign your name. It will be even better if you bring your family and friends. And to make it even more fun, if you don’t have a library card, bring identification that shows your current address and sign up for one.
Where? At 6000 Eastern Ave. This is about half a mile north of 53rd St. Remember 12:00 pm until 2:00 pm on September 12. Bring everyone you know with you!
