Summer Reading Program :

Teen Reading Program


This year we are trying something different.  I know you have busy schedules, so we are doing drawings for prizes.  Fill out the form for the book you’ve read and drop it in the box in the YA area.  (If you have read a music themed book I will put your name in three times.)  Once a week I will draw a name and the winner will receive a prize of a variety of gift cards.

You are invited to come to the T.A.G. meetings every 4th Thursday of the month at 3:30-5 p.m.  At the meetings we rotate between doing crafts, playing games, or watching a movie.  But we always talk books!

July 23rd  6pm Greg Hipskind’s Hands on Rock

Greg Hipskind, professional musician, drummer and director of QC Rock Academy will come to the library, set up the equipment, and encourage participants to take part in a rock band experience. The Academy teaches a multi-level rock’n’roll curriculum, assisting with playing techniques and stage presence. Come on out for a one-of-a-kind good time!    We are offering this opportunity for teens, but interested youth ages 8 & up may attend.


This event is supported with Quad City Arts Dollar$ funds, provided by Hubbell-Waterman Foundation, the Illinois Arts Council, John Deere, and  the Doris and Victor Day Foundation.

Aug 27th Games.

FYI- I will have our  YA Music related books on top of the shelf close to the window so it would be easy to choose one.
