The GAHC&M is happy to announce that we are now participating in the @railslibraries Explore More Illinois program! Explore More Illinois is a cultural pass program that allows Illinois public library cardholders access discounts at museums, park districts, historical societies, zoos, arts centers, recreational facilities, and other attractions.
We are the FIRST Iowa location available through this program. Illinois Library card holders can access the buy one, get one, admission to the museum.

(Moline Public Library, Rock Island Public Library, Andalusia Township Library, East Moline Public Library, Viola Public Library District, and Colona District Public Library are some of the local participating libraries. If you do not have a library card it is free and easy to get one!)

How we install our Advent Calendar windows!
Step 1 We cut the vinyl so they fit the shape of the windows. Since it is an old building not all of the windows are the same size.
Step 2 Climb onto your desk in order to reach the top of the window. 🤪
Step 3 Peel back the plastic film to reveal the clingy vinyl.
Step 4 Use a plastic card or scraper to adhere the design to the window, getting as many bubbles out as you can.
Step 5 Admire the new design and countdown the days until Christmas!#advent #christmas #windows #vinyl #davenport #german #museum #froheweinachten…
