The goal of the Winter Reading Challenge is to help children find joy in reading and maybe discover a new “best friend.” It was developed for three different reading audiences.
• Ages 0–4: Includes activities that promote literacy and are fun for the child and caregiver to do together.
• Grades K–4: Your child is in control, setting reading goals and having an opportunity to spin a wheel and receive experiential learning activities to share with caregivers and friends.
• Grades 4–6: Tweens set their own reading goals and are invited to complete weekly STEM challenges.
Following a six-month pilot period, the Arlington Heights Memorial Library Board of Trustees voted to extend the library’s weekend hours, remaining open until 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and opening the library an hour earlier, at 11 a.m., on Sundays. The cost for the library’s extended hours will be managed within the library’s currently approved budget.
Monday–Friday 9 a.m.–10 p.m.
