Ground broken for new Moline libary
Ground was broken Wednesday on the $10.1 million dollar library in Moline.
The 68,000-square-foot library will be located just south of the city's current Southeast Branch on 41st Street. It will be three times the size of the branch and will include meeting rooms, a coffee shop and room for future expansion.
A $2.5 million capital campaign will fund equipment and furnishings, architectural and other professional fees, and other contingencies. Several sizable donations, including $250,000 from the Moline Foundation, the largest received, were announced at the groundbreaking.
