Dine out to support Rock Island and Moline libraries 

Quad Citians can support Rock Island and Moline libraries by having dinner out on Tuesday, May 21, with the Together We Care Dining Fundraiser at Applebee’s in Moline. 

The fundraiser is hosted by the Friends of the Moline Public Library Foundation and the Rock Island Public Library Foundation PALS (People Advocating for Library Services).

To participate, drop in at the Applebee’s at 3805 41st Ave., between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m., and order from the special fundraiser menu. The two library advocacy groups will split 50% of all sales from special menu orders. Proceeds will support programs and activities at the Rock Island and Moline Public Libraries.

The offer is good for both dine-in and carryout, as long as the items are on the special menu. 

Membership in the Rock Island PALS group is $10 for students and $30 for families. Member dues, book sales, and other fundraising activities support fine-free lending and other special library programs that fall outside of the library’s tax-supported budget. Volunteers also assist with quarterly book sales, library beautification, library events, and other special projects. For more information, visit here.

Friends of the Moline Library supports the library through book sales, fundraising events, and grants to provide the funds used for materials, equipment, and services that the library would otherwise not be able to purchase. For more information, visit here.
