Checking Out Library Materials

A valid library card from the Moline Public Library or a PrairieCat member library is required to borrow materials and use the public computers.  Borrowers must present their physical library card when checking out materials. In the absence of a library card, Moline cardholders can present a valid photo ID or present their barcode via the library’s app. Minors may present a student ID or log in to their Skyward account for identification purposes.

As a member of the PrairieCat library consortium, Moline Public Library cardholders are also able to use their card at participating PrairieCat member libraries

Materials may be renewed unless the following exceptions occur:

  • The material is on reserve/hold for another patron or library.
  • The material has already reached its maximum number of renewals.
  • The material is not allowed to be renewed.

Requesting Items Within PrairieCat

Holds may be made on most circulating material found within the PrairieCat catalog, with the exception of new items not owned by Moline Public Library, passes to local attractions, reference material, books reserved for in-library use, and mobile hot spots (for non-Moline cardholders).  Your library card number and PIN is required to request materials through the catalog.
