Fees for Nonresidents

In order to protect the rights of residents of Moline who pay taxes to support the library, nonresidents will pay for library cards in the same manner as residents. On January 13, 2022, the Moline Public Library Board of Trustees adopted an annual fee of $161 for borrowing privileges extended to nonresidents of Moline. This $161 fee represents the average annual household tax paid to the Moline Public Library. Arrangements can be made with the Library to make quarterly payments for the $161 nonresident card fee. Nonresident cards are valid for one year.  

Nonresident applicants are qualified to apply if the Moline Public Library is the closest public library to their residence.  (23 Ill. Adm. Code 3050.25)

Nonresident fee does not apply to veterans with a service-connected disability who are exempt from paying property taxes on their primary residence. When applying for a library card, qualifying individuals must present documentation from Rock Island County indicating their property tax exemption.  (23 Ill. Adm. Code 3050.60)

Nonresident fee does not apply to students who are eligible to receive a free or reduced price lunch under the National School Lunch program. When applying for a library card, qualifying students must present documentation from their school or school district indicating their eligibility for free or reduced price lunches.  (23 Ill. Adm. Code 3050.75)
