Starting October 7th, the Fairmount Branch Library will be open Sundays from 1pm to 4pm. Sunday hours continue through April, so here’s your chance to spend your Sunday afternoons using the computers, checking out a DVD from our extensive collection, or enjoying a book in front of the fireplace.
Do you like live jazz music? Birthday cake? Both? The 18th annual Bix Birthday Bash will have all of that and more. Stop by the Eastern Avenue Branch Library on March 7th at 1 p.m. to hear the Bix All-Star Band. Stick around after the show, because we will also be serving birthday cake and ice cream in honor of what would have been Bix Beiderbecke’s 109th birthday.
Come all ye fans of edible homes! The Davenport Public Library is the place to view gingerbread houses of different shapes and sizes. We have castles with ice cream cone towers and cabins with pretzel roofs. See Starburst paths and Tootsie Roll trees.
The Quad City Arts Festival of Trees was kind enough to lend some of their gingerbread houses to be displayed at the Library. The Fairmount Branch is hosting about a dozen of these houses in their display cases. You can also see some at Main Street and Eastern Avenue. Pop in between now and January 7th to have a peek at these scrumptious abodes! Sorry, no nibbling allowed.
