DID YOU KNOW?
We have a bronze look statue in the Local History Room that is reminiscent of the statue at Lincoln's Tomb in Springfield. When giving tours, especially to ESL students, we explain Lincoln legend and lore, noting that it is considered lucky to rub the nose of the Lincoln statue at his tomb.
Our predominantly print materials collection focuses on Moline history, as well as Quad City and Illinois history.
We are in the process of having the Moline high school yearbooks digitized.
We have in house digitized access to 1940-1969 Moline Dispatch newspapers and several turn of the 20th century forerunner papers.
