In this season of thanks and giving, the Friends of the Moline Public Library would like to thank our patrons for continued support of our book sale room. With your support, we were able to grant more than $30,000 to the library this year for programs and materials.

As our gift to you, during the month of December 2012, all items in our store will be by donation only. That's right, no fixed prices. You pay what you want to give for the value of an item in our store.

Season's Readings and happy shopping!

Date: Dec 1-Dec 30, 2102
Time: During regular Friends store hours
Location: Friends Book Sale Room
