There was something for everyone at Poetry Night at the library. In honor of National Poetry Month, the library hosted three poets with vintage typewriters who created one-of-a-kind poems on the spot for library visitors.

Quilters An unexpected sight greeted people passing by the Hendrickson Room North on a recent day in June. The room was filled with sewing machines and members of the Northwest Suburban Quilters Guild of Arlington Heights. They were busily making quilts, using a quilt displayed in the front of the room as their pattern. This group is just one of many who use the Hendrickson Room to hold their meetings.  Find out more about how to book the Hendrickson Room and/or small conference rooms for your group. See Meeting Room Policies.
