Study Rooms

The Moline Public Library study rooms are for quiet study by individuals or small groups. The fundamental objective of these study rooms is to provide a suitable environment for research, study and reading. 

Study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Study rooms cannot be reserved in advance. Personal items cannot be left in a study room to reserve or "hold" the room for use. 

There is no fee for the use of study rooms.
