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.
Visit a Little Library at any of our elementary schools!
Attend a WQPT Story Time at your local branch of the Rock Island Public Library! Story Times are scheduled for the following times and locations:
June 4, 10:30 am at the 30/31 Branch Library
June 7, 10:30 am at the Downtown Library
June 12, 10:30 am at the Southwest Branch Library
