What's Up at the Library?


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.



We like to hear from our customers about the great experiences they have at the library, including the services they were surprised to find we offer. Read some of our favorite stories featured on our new testimonial webpage.
 
We'd love to hear from you. Tell us about a great experience you had at the library, or something new you discovered that the library has to offer. Share your experience with us here.
