Do you love to play chess? Would you like to share your enthusiasm with school-aged children? Then please consider volunteering to facilitate the Library’s Chess Club.
Kids’ World sponsors a monthly Chess Club for children ages 5 to 14. Each group club meeting begins with a lesson in how to play the game of chess. This lesson is followed with supervised open play. This is a very popular program that needs a new facilitator.

Arlington Heights' youngest readers have been taking their best shots this week at playing "Chelsea Dagger," the Chicago Blackhawks goal song, on a giant-sized floor piano in Kids' World. Located on the first floor, the jumbo piano is part of Read to the Rhythm, the library's summer reading program. The sheet music changes weekly and in support of the Blackhawks' quest for the Stanley Cup, the current selection is the team's goal anthem–music to the ears of Blackhawks fans everywhere–duh, da, da, da. "Chelsea Dagger" will be on display in Kids' World through Sunday, June 14.
The dinos are getting closer, and some are already here. Come to Kids' World to see the new dinosaur murals above the Kids' World Desk and get ready for a dinorrific summer of reading. It all starts June 6.
Stop by Kids' World to see our newly refurbished dollhouse. It is now interactive. Touch the screen and rooms light up; touch toys in the rooms and books pop up. There are five objects in each room that correspond to books in our collection. See if you can find them all!
