Inside the Library

The inside of the library is finally looking like a library! We have all the books on the shelves except for the NEW books and teen books. We are missing the shelves so those are sitting on top of units or around the edges of the building. With our capable staff, we have already finished […]

Books and more books

The staff spent two days unloading 33,400 pounds of materials. It took approximately 2 hours to unload 31 pallets of boxes and distribute them around the building.

When searching for a new home, the conventional wisdom is to pay attention to location, location, location.  When siting a library (or any other business) location is vitally important as well.  We’re excited about our new location in northeast Davenport.  It has easy access (just turn north on Eastern Avenue from 53rd Street); it’s close […]

More than construction!

  Actual construction is important in our new Eastern Branch and as you can see from the pictures, we are now moving the dirt. But behind the scenes, we are also working to prepare for opening the new branch. Once you step into the building, you are going to expect to see a collection of […]
