Whether you grew up in Arlington Heights or came here recently, you are invited to share your memories about life, past and present, in Arlington Heights on the library’s new Home Sweet Home site. Home Sweet Home is an online pinboard created to collect pictures, videos and stories that highlight what makes our village unique and unforgettable. It will be a permanent, online destination on our website and is the library’s gift to the community to celebrate our village’s 125th anniversary.
All the information you need to get started can be found on the website under HELP: Getting Started, but if you need assistance, you can schedule an appointment with us. Any other questions about Home Sweet Home can be directed to email@example.com.
