What's Up at the Library?
In the past year the library has presented storytimes, STEM clubs, book discussions, author visits, exhibits, summer reading programs and more. We've welcomed the community to celebrate the arts at the District 25 art show and reception, a fairy tale exhibit and costume gala and months of themed programs exploring fairy tales. Arlington Heights came together to read and discuss the themes behind the One Book, One Village book selection and tweens and teens found opportunities to learn and discover together. Local entrepreneurs gathered to share their experiences with small business owners and the library continued to offer new tools for customers to get creative in the Studio.
The library is a busy place thanks to our customers, with nearly 90,000 people attending programs at the library in 2015. Check out our video featuring highlights of the past year, then see a list of upcoming programs at ahml.info.
The library’s 3D printers are available for use by A.H. cardholders. For a small fee, library cardholders can submit their designs to be printed out using our MakerBot Replicator Mini 3D printers. The size is limited to 100 x 100 x 125 mm (approximately 3.9 x 3.9 x 4.9 in.) with a variety of colors to choose from. The cost of the print will vary depending on the amount of plastic used. Each print will cost $1.00 for the first five grams of material used and $0.25 for each additional gram. Allow up to two weeks for printing. For more information visit ahml.info/3d.
