One-Man Show!

With songs and stories, Barry Cloyd, singer and songwriter,  portrays his grandfather, Chalmer M. Cloyd Sr., who enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1917. Cloyd shipped out to France on the RMS Carpathia as a Mess Sergeant and then fought as an infantry soldier in some of the most brutal battles of the "War to End All Wars."  

 



Best-selling author, award-winning documentary producer, and long-time history enthusiast visits the Library as part of the Quad City Arts Visiting Artist Series.  Beyer produced the PBS documentary The Ghost Army, which has been honored with a CINE Golden Eagle and audience awards at several film festivals.

Yahtzee!  Sorry! Uno! Checkmate! 
 
There's a great deal of fun in shouting out those words!
 
This month we're giving  a shout out to our Board Games Collection, as we celebrate International Games Week, November 3-9.
 
The Moline Public Library has more than 100 board and card games available in our Adult Services Department (2nd floor) and in our Children's Services Department (1st floor) that check out for three weeks.
 
The Library will also soon have three braille games, a deck of playing cards, Life and Uno, thanks to the Constance Hilton Mark Fund in support of materials for limited vision.
 
Game on at your Moline Public Library!
