    I was looking for information on your summer tween reading programs/groups. My daughter is 12 and is currently in a reading club at her school and is hoping to join something this summer. This MPL website seems to have changed and I can not find the calendar of events. Can you send me the link, or information on this summers programs for my daughters age?

      Moline Library’s 2015 Summer Reading Program will run June 6 through August 1. To find the MPL Calendar of Events, go to and on the right side of the screen click on “Programs and Events” and then “Program Calendar.” Information about the Summer Reading Program has not been posted yet, but should be available soon. The Young Adult Program is for students entering grade 6 through 12, and the children’s program goes from birth to grade 6. Would you like me to add you to our email list to receive notification about programs and events for teens and tweens?
