Putting on a puppet show in Kids' World
On February 10, libraries across the state took photos of the happenings - big and small - at their libraries. It was part of an intiative by the Illinois Library Association to show how valuable libraries are to their communities. Putting on a puppet show is just one of the things that you can do at the Library.  Click here for a quick look at some other ways the Library is used every day.

caddystacks_sold_out For one night, it was like the Masters at the Library, or at least the masters of mini golf. The Library was turned into a very unique mini golf course featuring our extensive collection. The Caddy Stacks mini golf event was a fundraiser for a new aquarium for Kids' World and a chance to see the Library in a whole new way. From the big blue monster that welcomed all to Kids' World to the stunning floral display from Sylvia's Flowers, the entire building was transformed.   We'd like to thank our participants and sponsors for their support of this event. Local businesses and individuals who made contributions include: Arlington Heights Management Group Arlington Heights Park District Arlington Park Arlington Theaters Brian Properties Birch River Grill California Pizza Kitchen Drost Kivlahan McMahon & O'Connor LLC Friends of the Library Javier's Sabor Mexicano & Agave Bar Meredith Carlton Kramer Metropolis Performing Arts Centre Northwest Speech and Hearing Center Ltd. Picket Fence Realty Rolling Green Country Club Sue Dawson, Attorney Sylvia's Flowers 3D Interior Remodeling Tuscan Market & Wine Shop U Keep Us in Stitches, Inc.

bookmobile_winners In recognition of the first National Bookmobile Day in April, we celebrated all month long with a contest on the bookmobile. Entrants had to answer the question, "On average, how many miles does the bookmobile travel each week?"  There were three age groups - adults, teens and kids - and the two closest answers in each group won the entrants a $15 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble. Pictured above are some of the winners with Bookmobile Specialist Jose Maldonado on the right. Also shown are Eric Lueck, Sky Findlay and Matthew Feinberg. Congratulations to all of our winners! By the way, the bookmobile travels 74 miles a week on average. Click here to see the bookmobile schedule and find the closest stop to your house.

PaulaAndUkrainians A group of delegates representing the leading library networks of Ukraine visited the Library on Wednesday, April 21, as part of the Open Worlds Program sponsored by the Library of Congress. The group is spending eight days in the Chicago area familiarizing themselves with the work of their American colleagues. While here, they toured the Library and got an overview of our services and collection. In addition, they met with our volunteer coordinator,  Information Services manager, and Kids' World manager who briefed them on their departments and answered the delegates' questions about library services here.
