Rock Island Library Seeks Volunteers to Help with Smithsonian Exhibit PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events

Friday, 18 July 2014 13:23

Rock Island, IL-— The Rock Island Library is seeking volunteers to help install the Smithsonian Exhibit, "Hometown Teams," when it arrives at the Main Library in early September.

The six-person installation team will help put together the national exhibit on the 2nd floor of the Rock Island Main Library on Sept. 9 and 10, and take it down on Monday, Oct. 27. Installation requires no special skills. A step-by-step guide and video from the Smithsonian Institution Museum on Main Street program is available.

"If you've ever put together kit furniture, you can do this," said Lisa Lockheart, hometown teams project coordinator for the Rock Island Public Library. She is also searching for volunteers who can serve as exhibit guides. Training will be available on Sept. 11, at a time to be announced later.

If you can assist with either need, please contact Lisa Lockheart at the Rock Island Public Library by calling 309-732-7303 or emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Hometown Teams is a celebration of hometown sports, and its impact on nearly all aspects of American culture. The Rock Island Library is also looking for local memorabilia to display alongside the national exhibit from Sept. 13 to Oct. 25. Focus areas include:

  • Photos of high school teams, past and present, for "Hometown Teams" photo walls;
  • Softball items from traveling tournaments held at Douglas Park in Rock Island, and
  • Items from the Rock Island Independents football team and the Tri-City Blackhawks basketball team.

Donated items will be displayed in locked cases, and will be returned to their owners after the six-week run of the exhibit. To discuss what you have, call the library's Hometown Teams project coordinator Lisa Lockheart at 309-732-7303, or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Hometown Teams will be displayed at the Rock Island Main Library from 11:00 am, Saturday, Sept. 13 to 4:30 pm, Saturday, Oct. 25. Free public programs on the area's unique sports heritage will also be offered. Additional local sports displays may also be viewed this fall at Moline Public Library, Rock Island County Historical Society and the Karpeles Manuscript Museum.

Hometown Teams is part of the Museum on Main Street (MoMS) program, a partnership between the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the Illinois Humanities Council (IHC). MoMS brings Smithsonian-quality exhibitions to local museums, historical societies, libraries, and community centers. Other Illinois towns chosen to host the exhibit are in Cobden, Mattoon, Nokomis, Waterloo, and Nauvoo, IL.

The Freight House Farmer's Market returns to it's normal spot this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Freight House Building and Lot. Round up the family, even the dogs, and come on down for fresh, local goods. Make your way to the Quad Cities Food Hub to educate yourself on edible landscaping or learn how to make probiotics on only $5 a month!

 

 If you're looking for ways to enhance your artistic abilities, check out classes offered by Atom Studio + Gallery over in Bucktown Center for the Arts. Work on creating beautiful landscapes during their Landscape 2 class tonight, or introduce yourself to the art of painting your own wine glass on Saturday during their Painted Wine Glasses class.

 

 Mother Nature has been rather kind to us this week, so take advantage of this beautiful weather and head out to Modern Woodmen Park to cheer on the River Bandits. Tonight features Half-Price Night along with a hat giveaway to the first 3,000 fans. Saturday's game celebrates Christmas in July, so pull out that ugly sweater or Santa hat for $1 off your ticket.

 


Wind down your busy week at River Music Experience tomorrow during this week's Friday Live at 5 featuring Who Cares? sponsored by Swiss Valley Farms. Afterward, Six to the Chest, The Continuance, and Dynoride take over RME Hall for a night of energetic power rock and metal jams. On Saturday, support the Rock Campers at their Rock Camp USA Concert. Be sure to hop over early for some good seats!

 

 The 43rd Annual Street Fest is right around the corner! Come on down to Second Street next Friday and Saturday for a variety of vendors, live music, firefighter water fights, and fun! Keep in mind the Quad-City Times Bix 7 Sports and Fitness Expo is next Thursday at the RiverCenter, too.

Bettendorf Community-Wide Food Drive Seeks to Raise the Quality of Nutritional Items Available to the Food Pantry Visitors

Thanksgiving in July to collect non-perishable food items to benefit three Bettendorf pantries

Bettendorf, IA (June 16th, 2014) – Thanksgiving in July, a community-wide food drive seeks to collect non-perishable food items for three Bettendorf area pantries - the Bettendorf Community Center, First Baptist Church and St. James Food Pantry. The drive will be held Monday, July 14 through Saturday, July 19.

“Food pantries spend up to $1,500 each month on purchasing perishable and non-perishable food items,” said Jeff Herzberg, Founding Member. “Our goal is to collect enough non-perishable food items to allow the pantries to use those funds for milk, eggs and other high protein, good-for-you products on a regular basis to their visitors.”

  • Items in demand include canned fruit, vegetables, meat (tuna, chicken, Spam), peanut butter, rice, pasta/pasta sauce, Macaroni & Cheese, juice boxes, boxed meals and soups.

“While the beneficiaries of this year’s food drive are the citizens residing in the City of Bettendorf, we hope to expand our scope and help more pantries throughout the Quad-City area in the future,” said Herzberg.

Ways the Bettendorf community can support Thanksgiving in July:

  • Businesses are encouraged to hold a non-perishable food drive.

  • Athletic clubs, dance troops and nonprofit or civic organizations can sponsor a food drive through ball games, dances, raffles or other community events

  • Individual donations can be made at Hy-Vee on Devils Glen or Fareway on Belmont, in Bettendorf.

  • Personal checks payable to “Thanksgiving in July” can be sent or delivered to, Thanksgiving in July – Bettendorf, Northwest Bank, 2550 Middle Rd. Bettendorf, IA 52722.

Food items will be collected on Saturday, July 19 from 10 am to 2 pm at Faye’s Field parking lot – near the Family Museum, Bettendorf. Volunteers will load the food, weigh it and deliver items to the food pantries in the City of Bettendorf.

To learn more about Thanksgiving in July, contact Jeff Herzberg by calling 563 343 9737 or emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

About Thanksgiving in July

Locally in Scott County, 19.6% or approximately 8000 children under the age of 18 are faced with food insecurity -- a need that's even greater during the summer months when children are out of school. Local food pantries see a significant amount of their contributions during the November and December months. Our local pantries have demand all year long and the summer months are an especially high period of demand for their services. Thanksgiving in July is an opportunity for the citizens of Bettendorf to provide support to the food pantries in Bettendorf.
