New Moline Library seeking funds

The new southeast branch of the Moline Public Library is still a shell of a building, but some are already turning their focus on raising money to get the building filled.

The new library is under construction adjacent to the current southeast branch at 3130 41st St. It will cost $12.5 million to build. The city gave $10 million in bonds toward the project, which will be paid off with sales tax. The library has to raise $2.5 million from within the community.

So far, $1.3 million has been donated.

$1.2 million needed....what do they do if the dough is not there?? Leave it half done or put the taxpayers on the hook?
