What's Up at the Library?

Today the library hosted a tour for 65 area library directors and staff to show how our redesigned spaces and services are a direct result of responding to the new ways our residents are using the library. If you know a local group that would like a similar tour of the library, please call Deb Whisler, Director of Communications and Marketing, at 847-506-2613.

Drop in


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.

All library items can be returned at our book drop outside at Camelot Park, located at 1005 E. Suffield, or Frontier Park at 1933 N. Kennicott.

Kids' World

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!

 

 


The Japanese maple trees shown above were donated by the Friends of the Library in honor of Paula Moore for her exemplary service as Kids’ World manager and Executive Director from 1991–2012. You can see the trees on the north side of the library along Euclid Avenue.
