The LeClaire Community Library will be recarpeted and painted in February 2024,
with preparations underway now. This project will result in a unified color palette
throughout the building, and better flow and flexibility in the library space. It was
financed by the City of LeClaire, with assistance from the Friends of LeClaire
Community Library. This project is also the recipient of a Hubbell-Waterman
Foundation grant in the amount of $5000, to purchase new furniture for the
Children’s Area. This major update to the library’s appearance will officially begin
February 5 and is scheduled to be completed March 4, kicking off the celebration
of the 20 th anniversary of the library’s founding in July 2004.

The library has no plans to fully close at any point during the project but advises
library users to be aware that there may be periods of limited library access. Once
the work is underway, the public will be able to enter the building to pick up holds,
perform quick printing and faxing, drop off and pick up Winter Reading Program
materials, and ask reference questions of staff, but not browse independently for
materials. Library staff will be available to give curbside service, if patrons prefer
to have requested items brought to their vehicle.
February library programs will be held off-site, including weekly storytimes and
craft programs at the LeClaire Civic Center. There will be a special storytime at the
LeClaire Fire Station, a children’s STEAM program held at the Buffalo Bill
Museum, the adult Book Club will meet at Grasshoppers Gatherings, and AARP
Tax Aide appointments in February will be held at City Hall. On February 17 the
Civic Center will host a Trivia Night as a library fundraiser. For dates, times, and
exact locations of all programs, see the library’s website (,
Facebook page, or newsletter.
The library also advises users to monitor the library’s website and Facebook page
to stay aware of service updates and project progress. Stop in today to see samples
of the planned colors and a map of the intended changes, and to sign up for the
Winter Reading Program 2024: A Blizzard of Books.
