On April 30 community members gathered at the library for the State of the Village – A Community Conversation. This first-time event offered residents the opportunity to hear from the park district, local school districts, the library and also the mayor, Tom Hayes, about highlights of the past year and details for what lies ahead. After the presentations, attendees were able to meet and ask questions of community representatives. If you attended, thank you for spending the evening with us, and for your contributions to the conversations in the Arlington Heights community. If you missed it, the event will be broadcast starting May 5, on Channel 6 on WideOpenWest, Channel 17 on Comcast and Channel 99 on U-Verse.

drive_thru If you have a lot to do (and who doesn't these days?) and not enough time, use your computer and the Library's drive-up window to get what you need. Go online and reserve your books, movies and music. When they are ready, we'll email you, and you can pick them up at the drive-up window located in the underground parking lot. If you need to drop off materials, there's a book drop right next to it - perfect for a quick stop while out running your errands. Don't forget, the Library's drive-up window is now open Monday–Friday, beginning at 8 a.m., so you can pick things up before you go to work.

Arlington Heights resident Isabel Frye celebrated her 9th birthday in a very fun and creative way on Saturday, October 25. Her parents planned a scavenger hunt and hid clues at five stops around town including the library. The 10 party goers descended on Kids’ World mid-afternoon and after some quick sleuthing on the computer, they discovered their next clue – a scroll hidden inside a children’s book featuring The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. The cryptic message directed the kids to a different section of the library where a costumed Edgar (Isabel’s uncle) presented a very special and theatrical reading of Poe’s eerie poem to Isabel (pictured wearing blue bow) and friends.

Does your book group need suggestions for books that prompt great discussions? Would your PTA group like to know about the latest books? Or maybe your women’s club would like to learn about literary fiction for women. These are just some of the book talk topics that library staff members can offer your group.
 
If your group meets in Arlington Heights, we will come to your meeting. That includes homes or public meeting places. We can also arrange for your group to come to the Library.
 
We prefer a minimum of ten attendees and that half of the attendees are A.H. residents. If you would like to schedule a book talk or want more information, contact Anne Harmel, Advisory Specialist, at 847-870-4117 or aharmel@ahml.info.

Have you tried our self-checkout stations yet? They are a convenient way to check out items, pay your fines, and view  your holds and checked out items. Located near the Checkout Desk, the stations are just one of the options you can use to check out items from the library. You can still get personal customer service at the Checkout Desk, and you can check out with the library’s app for your smartphone.
