What's Up at the Library?
The library is honoring Women's History Month with a film showing of Miss Representation. The documentary takes an in-depth look at how the media's misrepresentations of women have led to a discriminatory and stereotypical portrayal of females in positions of power, and addresses the impact this has on people in their everyday interactions. Join us for a screening of the film, followed by a discussion.
Drop in to Kids' World for an iPad "petting zoo" and test-drive learning apps for children with special needs. For all ages.
Join us for snacks and more as we talk about the book Rules by Cynthia Lord. For ages nine and up. Books are available at the Kids' World Desk.
The award presentation was made at the ALA annual conference in Chicago, where Vic was also congratulated by AHML Trustee Deb Smart.
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. Family activities will include bubbles, sidewalk chalk, a bean bag toss, and other childhood favorites. For families.
Location: Library Parking Lot
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.
