Music meets reading in this summer's Read to the Rhythm reading program. We have activities planned for all ages so sign up early and join us for a great summer celebration of music, dancing, singing and reading. 
 
For more information, visit our Summer Reading Program page.
 
Dates: June 1-August 8
 
Kids: Celebrate music in all its various styles this summer as you improve your reading skills. Whether it’s attending a concert or making the music yourself, the library is the place to be. Sign up in Kids’ World, online or on the bookmobile. Receive a book log in which to record your reading goals and to keep track of your progress. When you are finished, bring the book log in to the library to select a book of your choice. For infants to age 12.
 
Teens: This summer in the Hub, each time you read a book, learn a new musical skill, create in our DIY space or come to one of our events, you will earn (and make) badges with our 3D printers, button maker, vinyl cutter and more. Complete all four of the above accomplishments to be eligible to win prizes like iTunes gift cards, musical instruments and the grand prize - a pair of Beats By Dre headphones. For teens in grades 7–12.
 
Adults: Tell us what you’re reading this summer by submitting a review to share either in person or online. Find out what others are reading by visiting our display in the Marketplace. Each review is your entry for prize drawings. You can submit a review in person at the Info Desk or online at ahml.info/summer. For adults 18 years of age and older.

Excitement filled the library's Marketplace on Monday night, May 4, as more than 150 Arlington Heights students, parents and teachers got a first glimpse at the 2015 District 25 Art Show. An annual event for 23 years, this year's show features 200 works of art curated from seven area elementary schools and two middle schools. Pieces range from illustrations and mixed media to self portraits and 3D art. 
 
"Each project has a concept or historical element attached to it," explains Brenda Miller, an art teacher at Westgate Elementary School and the team leader of the District 25 art teachers. "The students selected for the show are the ones who best grasped the concepts and their pieces display originality, craftsmanship and creativity. It is remarkable and wonderful to see what the kids produce when they have a steady diet of art. "
 
The children's efforts and talents fill ten colorful panels in the Marketplace and two display cases near the Dunton Street entrance of the library. The District 25 Art Show runs through the end of May.

The big smiles on the faces of young and old as they walked through the doors of the Hendrickson Room for last weekend's LEGO train exhibit said it all. The exhibit, which drew 2,763 attendees, was a crowd pleaser for all ages. The attendance was 5% higher than in 2008 - the last time the train exhibit was here. The exhibit was put together by Northern Illinois LEGO Train Club members. Our next family event is Astronomy Night on Friday, October 15, at 7 p.m. in the Hendrickson Room. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs Solar System Ambassador Jim Kovac will present “Exoplanets: Worlds Beyond Our Solar System.” Then everyone is invited to go outside to the parking lot to look through powerful telescopes set up by members of the Northwest Suburban Astronomers Club. It's all free, and there's no registration.
