Thank you to all of our wonderful customers, staff and community groups, 558 books were donated for children and teens for Wheeling Township’s Adopt-a-Family program. Special thanks go to library staff, the Rolling Green Nine-Hole Golf League and Chamber of Commerce Professional Women’s Council. Teen books were identified as a particular need this year, and Arlington Heights answered our call for materials needed for a broader age of readers, with many titles donated for teens and tweens. Since starting the holiday book drive in 1998, the library has donated 15,031 books to children in need. Thank you for helping provide the gift of literacy in our community during the holidays!

The library has expanded its weekend hours, remaining open until 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and opening the library an hour earlier, at 11 a.m., on Sundays. 

The pilot program, scheduled to run through the end of 2016, will extend weekend hours based upon a recent survey of library customers which indicated many residents wished the library offered more hours on the weekends. Use of the library during these times will then be evaluated before 2017 hours are set.

"These expanded hours stem from the fact that people's lives are busier than ever, and we want to make it as convenient as possible for them to visit the library," said Executive Director Jason Kuhl.

The $125,000 pilot program, which began on March 19, was approved as part of the library’s 2016 budget to provide extra funding to staff the library.
