April is National Autism Awareness Month and the library is focusing on raising awareness about this complex disorder through education, resource sharing and programs for all ages. Drop in to view the special exhibit, Stories of Autism in the Marketplace from April 1 – 26. It includes the moving portraits and stories of adults and children on the autism spectrum.
Learn more about autism programs and resources on the library's autism website page.
Drop by the Teen DIY exhibit in the Marketplace Exhibit area and see the imaginative creations made by teens in the Hub, featuring artwork, collages and DIY projects. Our Teen Services staff offers many hands-on opportunities for creative exploring using STEAM topics (Science, Technology, Engineering Arts and Mathematics) in an engaging way.
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.
