For the seventh consecutive time, Arlington Heights Memorial Library has received a five-star rating in Library Journal's national rating of public libraries. Five stars is the highest rating that a library can receive, and we are one of only 21 libraries in the nation to have earned five stars for each of the past seven years. Star ratings are based on the annual number of library visits, circulation, program attendance and public Internet computer use.
This is an honor for not only our staff and the Library Board of Trustees, but also for you, our customers. Thank you for making us a 5-star library once again. See Library Journal's 2014 index of star libraries.

During a team building game, the tweens made a yarn web that showed how much they have in common. The group decorated pumpkins as popular book characters for the Kids' World annual pumpkin display and made catapults and targets to be used during a Halloween event at the library.

A little rain couldn't dampen the enthusiasm of the dedicated volunteers who received a "shower of thanks" on Tuesday, May 5, at the annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon funded by the Friends of the Library. In 2014, 452 volunteers contributed 28,498 hours of service to the library and their efforts were recognized by library trustees and staff. 
"I'm in awe every year when I come to this event," said Executive Director Jason Kuhl who welcomed the crowd and presented the volunteer service awards. "We appreciate everything you do and all the hours you put in contributing to the library."
And put in hours they do. Ranging from 500 hours up to 15,000 hours of service, nearly 40 volunteers were honored for their contributions in all areas of the library including genealogy, ESL, Friends of the Library and the bookmobile. Years of service were also recognized and spanned from 3 years to 25 years of volunteering. Special honorees included Don Hartung and Jim Anderson who received the President's Lifetime Service Award by each contributing more than 4,000 hours of service. Jim volunteers as a Great Books book discussion facilitator, and Don assists with maintaining the toy collection in Kids' World.
The top honor of the day went to Terry Gavin who was named Volunteer of the Year. This is a one-time award that is given to the volunteer who has contributed the greatest number of hours during the previous year but has not previously received the award. Terry earned Volunteer of the Year for contributing 421 hours of service to the library in 2014 volunteering as an instructor for the computer program at the library's Senior Center.
"I love helping people, and I enjoy working with everyone at the senior center," said Terry who began volunteering at the library in 2006. "It's fun. They've given me more than I've given them."

The rock band Bobglobin debuted its latest music video earlier this month thanks in part to the Studio, the library’s multimedia production lab.  The band’s lead guitarist and Arlington Heights resident Tony Jannotta shot his part of the video at the library using the Studio’s Go Pro camera and green screen.
“The lead singer, Hop Litzwire, lives in Little Rock, Arkansas. He is an ESPN producer and camera guy, so he has his own studio,” says Allyson Jannotta, Tony’s wife who assisted with the production. “Usually my husband flies to Little Rock, but since we were able to use the camera and green screen at the library, it saved us from having to pay for the flight.”
Watch the end result featuring Tony on the guitar in Sinistar, a hard-driving rock tribute to the 1982 classic video arcade game.
Learn more about the Studio. Funded by the Friends of the Library.
