LEGO® ART+SCIENCE=ARCHITECTURE
Stop by the library during through April 30 to see an exhibit of 13 world-famous landmarks built entirely of LEGO® bricks. The exhibit was designed and created by Arlington Heights resident Adam Reed Tucker, LEGO® Certified Professional. Featured in the exhibit are the John Hancock Center, Marina City, Willis Tower, Trump Tower, Fallingwater, Empire State Building, St. Louis Arch, Transamerica Pyramid and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

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.

In recognition of the library's recent five-star rating, Illinois State Representative David Harris delivered a special congratulatory message direct from Springfield to the Library Board of Trustees. Speaking at their monthly meeting on January 20, Harris presented the Illinois House of Representatives Certificate of Recognition to Board President Kerry Pearson and Executive Director Jason Kuhl. The certificate reads:
 
"The 98th General Assembly, House of Representatives, acknowledges Arlington Heights Memorial Library in recognition of receiving a five star rating in Library Journal's national rating of public libraries for seven years in a row."
 
The library was 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. The library's range of programs for children, teens and adults plus specialized services offered in the library's Business Center and Training Center were key in receiving this distinctive recognition.
 
"When I heard about the five-star rating I said that's a real achievement," Harris added. "It speaks well of the board, the staff and overall of the community's involvement. Hats off to all of you for what you do."

Thanks to generosity of the Friends of the Library, programs in the Hendrickson Room are now much clearer for those with hearing aids and cochlear implants. A new audio loop system has been installed that sends electromagnetic signals to a tiny receiver already in most hearing aids and cochlear implants. It allows people who use them to hear sounds directly from the AV system. This reduces or cuts out background noise making it much easier to hear. To use the system, attendees need only set their hearing aids to the T (telecoil) setting.
 
In addition to the audio loop system, the library offers a number of other assistive devices.
