Enjoy Tropical Warmth on a Budget with Rock Island Library/Botanical Center Partnership
Rock Island, IL: If gray winter skies have left you feeling down, a new partnership between the Rock Island Public Library and the Quad City Botanical Center could lift your spirits with some free tropical warmth. Library cardholders can now check out a seven-day family Botanical Center membership at the Rock Island Main, 30/31 and Southwest Branch Libraries.

Each pass provides free admission to the Botanical Center's tropical sun garden and other attractions for up to four people for seven days. The pass can be checked out with a valid library card at the Main Library Circulation and Children's Room desks, and at the front desks of the 30/31 and Southwest Branch Libraries. Because the passes are not suitable for placement in the book drop or inter-library delivery, they must be picked up and returned in person to the library branch listed on the back.

There is no charge for the seven-day pass, and each pass may be used multiple times within the check-out period. Passes are non-renewable and have a $1 per day late fee.
