For the past 20 years, the library has set aside the month of May for displaying student artwork from all nine District 25 schools both in the gallery area and display cases on the first floor. The works highlight the art units and artistic techniques that students have learned throughout the current school year. Children enjoy bringing their families to the library to view their masterpiece and those of their classmates. We invite you to stop by this month and see the students’ accomplishments.

On Friday, July 29, Farm Bureau members from Cook and Kendall counties toured the library with State Representative David Harris as part of the Farm Bureau's Adopt-A-Legislator program.
Farmers from rural areas are matched with city and suburban legislators and visit their districts to learn about the important issues for cities and suburbs. Legislators like Representative Harris then visit the rural districts for farm tours to learn about the issues facing farmers.
In addition to the library, the tour also included Village Hall, the downtown business area, Tuscan Market, Metropolis and the Backstretch at Arlington Park. According to Representative Harris, the library was chosen for the tour because "it is one of the leading libraries in the state," and he wanted to showcase the Business Center, a "great resource for the community."
