What's Happening



Here in Rock Island, we believe in developing a love for reading throughout our community! Check back frequently for information on reading events in Rock Island!

  • Explore a universe of stories this summer at the Rock Island Public Library with The RockTown Reading Challenge! 

    To participate, finish either 24 books or 6 hours of reading between June 1 and July 31. (Reading aloud to your child counts, too!) You can earn prizes for every 8 books or 2 hours of reading! And because RockTown Reading is for everyone, there are also challenges and prizes for teens and adults.  Enter and participate with a paper form or online. Check out the details at any Rock Island Library or at www.rockislandlibrary.org.

Want to do more? Our team is encouraging Rock Islanders to share their love of reading with the world. 

Share a photo of your book, a picture yourself reading, or a group shot of your crew attending a reading-focused event on your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, and use the hashtag #RockTownReads to join the movement!

Need some ideas for your photos? Check out our Instagram and Facebook pages and get inspired to get out and read!
