Guests can visit the bookmobile to apply or renew a Rock Island Public Library card, or check out materials from the bookmobile. 

A second cool opportunity to get a card or visit the bookmobile will be offered on Friday, August 12. The Library2Go bookmobile will team up with Stan’s Ice Cream to offer a library card drive at Schwiebert Park in Rock Island from noon to 2:00 pm on August 12. Guests who show their library card during the event get a 10 percent discount on any treat from Stan’s Ice Cream van.
