Three watercolor paintings of Chicago scenes, donated to the Library in memory of former volunteer and Friends of the Library president George Krueger, were dedicated at a recent event. The paintings by artist Sally Perfect Wallman were selected by the Friends of the Library Art Committee and are hanging above the foreign film DVDs on the first floor. Pictured are Krueger’s daughter, Christine; his wife, Irene and Friends’ president Allison Anderson. More event photos.

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.
