Events part of library participation in East West Riverfest, Sept. 6-22, 2013

Rock Island, IL: From a walking tour of Rock Island saints and sinners to a lecture program on how the early brewing industry affected the lives of women, local history is on tap at the Rock Island Library in September. The events are part of the library's partnership with Experience Quad Cities and its second-annual East West Riverfest focus on arts, culture and heritage from Sept. 6-22.  Rock Island Library events are free and open to the public.

Lace up your shoes for a walk among "Reformers and Reprobates." From local reformers such as Miss Ellen Gale and Minnie Potter to the reprobates of the John Looney era, Rock Island history is full of fascinating saints and sinners.

Hear their stories through a downtown walking tour sponsored by the Rock Island Public Library on Thursday, Sept. 12, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Local historian Jill Doak will lead a tour that encompasses several Looney-era sites, including Bill Gabel's "soft drinks" establishment, Anthony Bilburg's saloon, the Looney and Kelly office building, and the former sites of the Como and Sherman Hotels, as well as the sites of Rock Island reformers, including the Rock Island Argus building,  the Potter House, Dr. DeSilva's home, the YMCA, several historic churches, and of course, the Rock Island Library. The tour meets at 6:00 pm inside the Main Library, 401 19th Street, and then leaves the library to move around the downtown.

Registration is not required, but is appreciated. Walk-ins are welcomed.  Call 309-732-7303 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to sign up, so we know not to leave you behind!

Learn About the WPA in the Quad Cities: The Rock Island Public Library will present Dr. Jeff Hancks from Western Illinois University for a program on The WPA in the Quad Cities on Monday, Sept. 16 at 2:00 pm in the Main Library, 401 19th Street. This free program will meet in the second-floor Community Room and is open to all ages.

The Works Project Administration (WPA) and Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) were federal work relief programs begun under Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. As the largest and most ambitious of the Depression-era agencies, these programs employed millions to carry out construction, parks, and arts projects. Dr. Hancks will speak generally on the various relief projects carried out nationwide during the Great Depression and specifically on projects benefiting the Quad City area, such as the Rock Island Longview Park Greenhouse, Lock & Dam #15, the Moline Municipal Airport and Black Hawk State Park. Rock Island native Jeff Hancks is a special collections librarian at Western Illinois University in Macomb.

Proper Ladies & Painted Women: Women, Work, and Reform in a Wet City: Learn about the rich history of brewing in the Quad Cities, and how that industry affected the lives of local women, with a free lecture program by Augustana College professor Dr. Jane Simonsen on Thursday, Sept. 19 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. The free program takes place in the Community Room of the Rock Island Main Library, 401 19th Street, and is open to the public.  Dr. Jane Simonsen is an associate professor of history at Augustana College, where she specializes in U.S. women's history, gender studies and Native American studies.

Additional events going on at the Rock Island Library during the East West Riverfest time period include free morning and evening children's storytimes,  three "Smart Start" Saturday storytimes, free Lego block construction times, the "Ripples of Inspiration" art exhibit at the Main Library, adult classes in how to use Email and Microsoft Word, and an eBook demo at the Southwest Branch. For more details about library events, visit the Rock Island Library website at www.rockislandlibrary.org, sign up for an email newsletter, follow the library on Facebook or Twitter, or call 309-732-7323 (READ.)

Free copies of the East West Riverfest guide are also available at all Rock Island Public Libraries. More than 300 events at 60 different community venues are posted on the East West Riverfest website at www.eastwestriverfest.com.

October 29th - Friends of the Library to Host LeClaire City Office Candidates Forum. All City Council and Mayoral candidates for election in the November 2013 municipal elections for the City of LeClaire are invited to participate in a public forum hosted by the Friends of the LeClaire Community Library on Tuesday, October 29th beginning at 7:00 P.M. sharp. Due to space constraints, the forum will be at the LeClaire Fire Station located at 201 N. 15th Street (corner of Jones and 15th). This is an educational service to which the public and press are invited. As in past years, questions may be submitted by any resident of the city of LeClaire (including candidates) by placing the written questions in a secured box at circulation desk of the LeClaire Community Library. There is no limit on the number of questions an individual may submit and questions may be submitted anonymously. One week prior to the Forum, all questions submitted will be delivered to the moderators, who will group duplicates and select the questions to be asked during the forum. Questions will be asked of candidates in rotating order, with response times for each question determined by the moderators. This year’s moderators are Ann Hutchinson, former mayor of Bettendorf, and Linda Miller, Iowa House of Representatives, also of Bettendorf. Candidates who have not already done so are asked to respond indicating

whether they will participate to Jillian Flahaven, Interim Director of the LeClaire Community Library, by October 27, 2013 by calling 563-289-4242 x 4 or via email at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

FYI

A woman called from Minnesota to buy $200 worth of Chamber Bucks to give her new daughter -in-law for a wedding present. The daughter-in-law loves The Pickers and is coming to LeClaire to see them. The mother-in-law wanted her to have something to spend in LeClaire, so she thought of Chamber Bucks.  What a great idea!

30th Annual Labor Day Parade set for September 2nd in East Moline PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events

2013 Theme: You Work Hard. You’ve Earned It. Labor Day 2013.

QUAD CITIES -- The Quad City Labor Day Parade Alliance will hold their 30th Annual Labor Day Parade in East Moline on Monday, September 2nd. This year's Grand Marshall is UFCW 431 President Jerry Messer. On Labor Day, more than sixty area unions, community non-profits, and businesses will march west on 15th Avenue from 13th Street to 3rd Street in East Moline, IL. Line up begins at 8:00 a.m. at the John Deere Harvester Works Parking Lot: 1100 13th Avenue, East Moline, IL. The parade begins at 11:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m.  After the parade, join us at the “Salute to Labor Chicken Fry” at Illiniwek Park, Rt 84 Hampton, IL. Serving from 11:30-3:00pm. The picnic tickets are $10 for adults and $6.00 for children under 12 and can be purchased at the event.

Labor Day is a celebration of the incredible contributions of America’s working people. Through sweat, sacrifice, and innovation, workers built this country and make it run every day. We take pride in doing the best job possible. But today most of America’s workers are working longer hours, taking on multiple jobs, and producing more goods and services. Yet wages have not kept up. While wages for working families have stagnated, the super-wealthy, including CEOs and corporate executives, have done pretty well. According to the Economic Policy Institute, the top 1% has grabbed nearly 60% of the income gains in the past 30 years. Meanwhile, the bottom 90% has only received 8.6% of all gains in income.

The productivity of working families has powered our region’s growth, but wage growth has not kept pace with the productivity of working families. We believe in extending a ladder to the middle class for all who play by the rules and work hard. Union and nonunion; low wage, blue collar and white collar; documented and undocumented—workers are united in the belief that this should be the country of opportunity. This Labor Day, we stand united in our belief that everyone deserves a voice on the job, a living wage, and a workplace safe from harassment and abuse.

We recognize the millions of workers who do not get this holiday off and those who are striking and walking off the job across the country because they hope to raise their families on a livable wage. We ask our leaders to invest in economic growth from the middle class out, and to respect workers’ freedom to come together in unions to organize and build a better bargain for everyone.

Every day, workers labor and sacrifice to achieve the American Dream. We celebrate this holiday to tell workers everywhere: You’ve earned it!
