Life Readers: Classics Study Group
Led by a Newberry Library Independent Scholar, this serious group will focus on close textual analysis of A Dance to the Music of Time by Anthony Powell. For anyone who is interested in studying serious books in a group setting, this group will help participants to understand the classics in context, with each discussion supplemented by biographical, historical, and critical information.
This group's members supply their own books. Because of the differences in various editions or translations, it is important to read the editions listed on the supplied reading list. Register and pick up your reading list information at any time at the Info Desk in the library. Participants may join for all books, or for separate titles. Questions? Call the Info Desk, 847-392-0100.

Thanks to the support of library users in the northern part of Arlington Heights, we have decided to continue the book drops at Camelot and Frontier Parks after a successful pilot program with the Arlington Heights Park District this summer. The Camelot Park book drop has been relocated to the south entrance of the tennis courts on N. Brighton Place due to construction. The Frontier Park book drop will remain at 1933 N. Kennicott.
