  • Copy machine, scanner, or fax machine usage will be limited to 15 minutes.
  • Patrons are encouraged to use the self-checkout stations and pay fines online.
  • For a new library card, patrons will be asked to apply online in the library and a staff member will issue a new card immediately.
  • Patrons are encouraged to pick up holds via the curbside delivery or through the window at Fairmount.
  • Public computers are available for a limited basis and must be reserved a day in advance by calling (563) 326-7832. Computer sessions are limited to one hour and one reservation per day.

The Davenport Public Library will add more services in the future.
