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.
