What's Up at the Library?
Check out our new location for community information just inside the Dunton Street entrance on the wall near the Cardinal Room. We have many free community resources available to our customers such as consumer information, local bus schedules, and publications like the Windy City Times and Senior News.
Walk, ride, or skip to the library to join us for a day of old-fashioned summer fun! Qualified bicycle technicians from Village CycleSport in Arlington Heights will be on hand to give your bike a safety check, offering minor repairs on-the-spot and recommendations for further maintenance.

Library users living in the northern part of Arlington Heights now have the added convenience of returning their library items at book drops located at Camelot and Frontier Parks. In partnership with the Arlington Heights Park District, this pilot program will evaluate library service in this area and will continue through September 3. It was initiated now to take advantage of the high traffic at the parks during the summer swim season and to save busy families from having to make an extra trip to the library.

Did you know that now you can check whether the library has a book while browsing Amazon and other websites by using our new "Check AHML" bookmarklet? The bookmarklet lets you know whether a title is available at the library and checks all the editions of the title, not just the edition you're looking at. Get the "Check AHML" bookmarklet, and simply drag the button to your browser's "bookmarks" bar. It's that easy!
