What's Up at the Library?
How about sharing the gift of books with area children at our Holiday Book Drive? For the 17th year we are collecting new books for children from infancy to age 16 for Wheeling Township’s holiday Adopt-a-Family program. In that time we’ve collected 13,831 books. Help us continue the tradition this year. Bring your books to the collection bin on the first floor by the Checkout Desk or to the bookmobile. Books in Spanish are also welcome. For more information, contact Deb Whisler at 847-506-2613.

One Book, One Village continues at the library through December 8.
We’ve just added American Girl, Better Homes and Gardens, Dr. Oz The Good Life, FamilyFun, Hello! and HGTV to the list of over 100 current magazines we offer online through Zinio, the library's digital magazine service. If you are an Arlington Heights cardholder, you can select any number of magazine titles and have them delivered right to your PC or mobile device. It's free, and there are no returns and no due dates. Visit our eBooks and Downloads page to learn more about using Zinio.
Shared reading is the best way to help babies, toddlers, and preschoolers develop the important early literacy skills they need to learn how to read independently later on. The more books children ages 0–5 hear, the more prepared they will be to learn how to read. It’s never too early to start.
• Register here or in Kids’ World.
• Start reading and counting!
• Drop by Kids’ World to check in and receive prizes.
• The library will host a 1000 Books Celebration in May 2015, but the program doesn’t end until your child enters kindergarten.
Helping your child develop early literacy begins with cuddling up and sharing a good book. Research shows that children become readers on the lap of a caring adult. Join us as we reach for 1000!
