kindle_blog Did you know that the Library has eReaders that you can check out? We have Kindles, Nooks and Sony Readers that can be checked out for two weeks (except for the Kindle DX). Each eReader has titles preloaded for you to read. The Kindles have either popular fiction or nonfiction titles, and the Sony Readers and Nooks have both fiction and nonfiction titles on each. To find out what titles are available, check our catalog under eBook Reader to get a listing. To check one out, pick up a case on the "Just Arrived" shelves located near the Welcome Desk and take it to the Checkout Desk. Before you leave the Library, be sure to stop at the Welcome Desk for some quick instructions to get you started.

Arlington Heights' youngest readers have been taking their best shots this week at playing "Chelsea Dagger," the Chicago Blackhawks goal song, on a giant-sized floor piano in Kids' World. Located on the first floor, the jumbo piano is part of Read to the Rhythm, the library's summer reading program. The sheet music changes weekly and in support of the Blackhawks' quest for the Stanley Cup, the current selection is the team's goal anthem–music to the ears of Blackhawks fans everywhere–duh, da, da, da. "Chelsea Dagger" will be on display in Kids' World through Sunday, June 14.
 
Stop in, give the giant piano a try and register for Summer Reading.
