About

The Davenport Public Library is the municipal library for the City of Davenport, Iowa, serving a population of 99,685 residents.  We provide services through three facilities:  our downtown Main Street Library, the Fairmount Street Branch on the west side of town, and the Eastern Avenue Branch in northeast Davenport.  Our downtown location hosts the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center which focuses on local history and genealogy.  Patrons can access our library catalog, website, including numerous database resources, remotely 24-hours a day.  Wireless internet access and public computers are available at each of our locations.  Meeting rooms are available to non-profit organizations at each facility.

The Davenport Public Library works collaboratively with other Iowa and Illinois libraries in the RiverShare Consortium to share a public catalog.  By offering reciprocal borrowing privileges to one another, our patrons receive the benefit of having access to the resources of all twenty member libraries.
