What was life really like for the servants who worked below stairs in the era of Downton Abbey? Come and learn about the people who toiled around the clock to ensure the smooth running of these glamorous households. Leslie Goddard portrays Margaret Powell, a British domestic servant who worked in English homes in the 1920s. Based on Powell’s best-selling memoir Below Stairs, this program gives a lively look at the work it took to run a wealthy household in this era. Powell’s 1968 book was an inspiration for Upstairs, Downstairs and Downton Abbey.

caddystacks_sold_out For one night, it was like the Masters at the Library, or at least the masters of mini golf. The Library was turned into a very unique mini golf course featuring our extensive collection. The Caddy Stacks mini golf event was a fundraiser for a new aquarium for Kids' World and a chance to see the Library in a whole new way. From the big blue monster that welcomed all to Kids' World to the stunning floral display from Sylvia's Flowers, the entire building was transformed.   We'd like to thank our participants and sponsors for their support of this event. Local businesses and individuals who made contributions include: Arlington Heights Management Group Arlington Heights Park District Arlington Park Arlington Theaters Brian Properties Birch River Grill California Pizza Kitchen Drost Kivlahan McMahon & O'Connor LLC Friends of the Library Javier's Sabor Mexicano & Agave Bar Meredith Carlton Kramer Metropolis Performing Arts Centre Northwest Speech and Hearing Center Ltd. Picket Fence Realty Rolling Green Country Club Sue Dawson, Attorney Sylvia's Flowers 3D Interior Remodeling Tuscan Market & Wine Shop U Keep Us in Stitches, Inc.
