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.
The award presentation was made at the ALA annual conference in Chicago, where Vic was also congratulated by AHML Trustee Deb Smart.
