Did you know that the Library subscribes to 911 different magazines? The current copies are located on the first floor in the News Stand by the cafe. You can find back issues on the second floor adjacent to the Shackley Room. All back issues can be checked out for one week and renewed for one week. Take a look at the complete list of magazines the Library subscribes to and the newest additions to the collection. We also have magazines for kids and parents in Kids' World and magazines for teens in the Teen area near the Checkout Desk.

Our Choo Choo Choose Reading train is pulling into Kids' World again after chugging down the July 4 parade route. We invite you to come in to see it and take a picture next to it while holding your favorite book. Be sure to stop by the summer reading desk first and pick up your very own conductor hat to wear in the photo. Then post your photo to the the library’s Facebook page, and you will be entered into a drawing to win prizes. All aboard! Stop on by before the train leaves.

Tax Forms
Tax day is Wednesday, April 15, 2015. The library distributes tax forms provided by the IRS and the State of Illinois. This year both the state and the IRS have limited the number of forms they sent us. We currently have the federal 1040 form available.
 
Here are ways to obtain forms that the library does not have:

1. Find the form on our Tax Forms page  and download it from the IRS website.
2. Make copies of forms, schedules and instructions located in a large binder at the Info Desk.
3. Call the IRS at 1-800-829-3676 if you would like to order forms, instructions or publications by mail.
4. Order forms online here to be delivered by mail.

Technology was the word of the day as members of the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce jump started their morning, Thursday, March 19, learning about the latest tech tools and businesses services available at the library. It was all part of the library's Technology Breakfast Buffet. More than 40 local businesses and community leaders took part in the early-morning event which kicked off with a demonstration of the Oculus Rift,  the library's newest virtual reality device.
 
"It was really awesome," said Village Trustee Robin LaBedz, who wore the ski goggle-like headset and experienced a virtual trip through space. "I felt like I was flying around through outer space. It was really amazing and fun."
 
In other sessions, participants learned about 3D printing and the Studio, the library's digital media center. They also visited the Business Center and the Training Center where they were introduced to tech classes and the online tools that are available to support local businesses.
 
"I'm amazed at the wealth of resources, classes and creative services available here at the library at no cost," said Jill Halco of Springboard, a 10-person  Arlington Heights firm which specializes in marketing and branding for hospitals, healthcare and medical associations. "The library is a fabulous resource right in my own backyard."
