AHML is one of 60 libraries in Illinois selected as a pilot site for “Go Green @ Your Library,” a state-wide, collaborative project with the Illinois Library Association and the Field Museum in Chicago facilitated by funding from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The Library’s theme, “Village Voices - Green Choices” will highlight a variety of programs that will educate and inspire our community to “rethink green.”
To kick off our green initiative, we are starting a new monthly discussion group, “Reading Green.” Each discussion will relate to the themes and concepts in a specific book. Attendees do not need to have read the book in order to participate. Register online or at the Reception Desk on the second floor, 847-392-0100, for:

Close to 100 residents gathered at the library on Wednesday night, April 29, for the second annual State of the Village. Leaders from eight governmental entities, including Arlington Heights Mayor Tom Hayes, pictured, participated in the community conversation. Each took to the stage and presented current projects and significant developments that impact the village, area schools and park district.
The library presented a video featuring highlights of the past year. Audience members were also the first to learn the library's 2015 One Book, One Village book selection - The Book of Unknown Americans, by Chicago author Christina Henríquez. Executive Director Jason Kuhl announced this year's choice and invited everyone to join in the library's second community read. Following the presentations, attendees were invited to meet and ask questions of community representatives.
Read about State of the Village in the Daily Herald.  The event will also be broadcast on Channel 6 on WideOpenWest, Channel 17 on Comcast and Channel 99 on U-Verse or watch here now.

Thanks to everyone who turned out for Arlington Heights' annual Fourth of July parade and cheered on the library's two entries - the bookmobile and a float featuring our One Book, One Village 2015 selection, The Book of Unknown Americans. We also celebrated a special retirement along the way as bookmobile driver Al Piskorski topped off 10+ years of service behind the wheel for the library. Al drove in the parade as his final bookmobile assignment - now that's a finale!  See more parade highlights.

Fifth-grade students from Windsor Elementary School got a first-hand glimpse of what it’s like to have a job in a library during their visit on Wednesday, May 27. The students gained some real-life work experience in the library's Circulation department and Kids' World as part of the World of Work (WOW) program. These five students learned about selecting materials for the collection, checking in books and movies, re-shelving items, preparing kids' craft supplies, and more. WOW is an annual event which gives students an opportunity to dress professionally and act as “employees" for a day. The program is supported by 27 Arlington Heights businesses, with the goal of having students learn about the local economy.

If your status is Confirmed Registration, your spot for the event is confirmed.

If registration for this event is full, you will be placed on a waiting list. Wait listed registrants are moved to the confirmed registration list (in the order of registration) when cancelations are received. You will receive an email notification if you are moved from the wait list to the confirmed registration list.
