An unexpected sight greeted people passing by the Hendrickson Room North on a recent day in June. The room was filled with sewing machines and members of the Northwest Suburban Quilters Guild of Arlington Heights. They were busily making quilts, using a quilt displayed in the front of the room as their pattern. This group is just one of many who use the Hendrickson Room to hold their meetings. Find out more about how to book the Hendrickson Room and/or small conference rooms for your group. See Meeting Room Policies.
A recent storytime brought new visitors to the Library for an overnight stay. A group of very special furry friends, of the plush variety, and their young owners came for a storytime. After bedtime stories, the children tucked their stuffed animals under blankets in the Lindsey Room. Then the children went home, and their animals spent the night. And what fun they had! The next day, when the children came back, they got to see a slide show of all their animals' adventures. Each stuffed animal went home with a nametag and a sticker that said, "I slept over at the Library." See their Library adventures for yourself.
