Special Collections Closed Until Further Notice – Exciting events at our Eastern and Fairmount branches!

For the safety of our staff and patrons, the Davenport Public Library – Main Street Branch will be closed until further notice as the City of Davenport deals with the unexpected partial collapse of the Davenport Apartments located across the street.*

A previous blog about the history of the Hotel Davenport, now the Davenport Apartments, is located here.
