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.

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.
