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.

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.

Pictured are Samantha Onnen, Carley Berowski, Erin Fitzgerald, Leah Cooke, Lizzie Seibert, Lydia Schultz, and Grace Nykol of South Middle School Cadette Troop 41075. Absent from the photo is Marina Santicola.The Library's "Read & Feed" drive just got a big boost from the sixth-graders of South Middle School Cadette Troop 41075. As their community service project, the troop organized a food drive to contribute to the Library's drive. Troop leader Tracie Santicola said the girls were concerned about so many people needing help in this economy, so they planned a two-part food collection. They collected food at their school, and also collected at Mariano's Fresh Market on Saturday, October 16. 

 "People were so generous in donating groceries or cash to buy groceries, and many shoppers said they recognized the girls from school, scouts, church and neighborhood functions," said troop co-leader Donna Fitzgerald. 

Many thanks to South Cadette Troop members for their hard work to help their neighbors! 

The Library will continue the "Read & Feed" drive until December 1. Your donations of food pantry and pet food items, as well as new children's books, are welcomed. All items will be delivered to Wheeling Township for their food pantry and "Adopt-a-Family" holiday baskets. For more information on donating, call Deb Whisler at 847-506-2613.
