Can you guess how many balloons were featured in our Fourth of July parade entry?

The library floated to new heights at this year's annual Fourth of July Parade where we celebrated with countless balloons that brought a giant spider, butterflies, ladybugs and more to life. The balloon creatures elevated the spirits of parade goers as they made their way down the parade route, all coming together to represent this year's summer of reading. Our parade entry also included the library's bookmobile and thousands of Summer Reading paper crown giveaways.

The giveaways were made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. Special thanks to all of the library staff and volunteers, library board members and members of our community who helped represent the library during the parade and passed out giveaways to parade goers. A big thanks also to the Arlington Heights Frontier Days organizers for another incredible parade day in Arlington Heights!
