Ranging up to 17 feet high, some buildings are designed to expose their internal structure, so visitors can view the complex and intricate design and engineering that goes into construction of the models. This one-of-a-kind, museum-quality exhibit debuted at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago in 2009 and has since been displayed across the United States.

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.
In the past year the library has presented storytimes, STEM clubs, book discussions, author visits, exhibits, summer reading programs and more. We've welcomed the community to celebrate the arts at the District 25 art show and reception, a fairy tale exhibit and costume gala and months of themed programs exploring fairy tales. Arlington Heights came together to read and discuss the themes behind the One Book, One Village book selection and tweens and teens found opportunities to learn and discover together. Local entrepreneurs gathered to share their experiences with small business owners and the library continued to offer new tools for customers to get creative in the Studio.
The library is a busy place thanks to our customers, with nearly 90,000 people attending programs at the library in 2015. Check out our video featuring highlights of the past year, then see a list of upcoming programs at ahml.info.
The Kenneth Hood Service Award was created in 2008 when, at his 100th birthday, longtime community activist and resident Kenneth Hood challenged those attending his celebration to pick up his “torch of service to Arlington Heights’ Senior Citizens.”

The library serves all preschools, elementary, middle and high schools located in Arlington Heights or where Arlington Heights students make up at least 45 percent of the student body. For more information, visit http://www.ahml.info/teachers.
