East Moline Public Library Leadership Kickoff

The East Moline Public Library was excited today to announce their campaign leadership team. This team will be leading the next phase of the $7.1 million fundraising effort. To date, almost $5 million has been raised. Laura Long, Director of East Moline Public Library, said “we are excited to have so much vital community support for this transformative project.” This initiative will take advantage of the gift of TBK Bank to renovate and add to their beautiful mid-century bank and downtown East Moline. The event was held at the boardroom of the Bank.


John DeDoncker, President of TBK Bank’s Midwest Division, said “we are excited to have this project moving forward with such strong community leaders.”
