Inspiration loomed large for 53 fourth graders from St. James School who began their school week with a field trip to see the library's LEGO® ART+SCIENCE=ARCHITECTURE exhibit which features 13 world-famous landmarks built entirely out of LEGO® bricks. The students came with an important assignment - to think about how they too can build models. Theirs will be Midwest landmarks and will be part of the school’s Creative Learning Fair at the end of May.
 
"The students were reading the exhibit signs and really paying close attention to how many hours and how much hard work went into creating each of the buildings," said Darlene Potenza, a fourth grade teacher at St. James School. "It was also really exciting for them to see buildings they recognize or have visited either here in Chicago or other places."
 
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.
 
The exhibit runs through Sunday, May 3 on the first floor of the library.

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."
