What's Up at the Library?
Whether you grew up in Arlington Heights or came here recently, you are invited to share your memories about life, past and present, in Arlington Heights on the library’s new Home Sweet Home site. Home Sweet Home is an online pinboard created to collect pictures, videos and stories that highlight what makes our village unique and unforgettable. It will be a permanent, online destination on our website and is the library’s gift to the community to celebrate our village’s 125th anniversary.
All the information you need to get started can be found on the website under HELP: Getting Started, but if you need assistance, you can schedule an appointment with us. Any other questions about Home Sweet Home can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us for a discussion of the very first story, published in 1887, featuring super sleuth Sherlock Holmes. Pick up a copy of the book at Customer Services or download the free eBook. This is the last book discussion in the quasquicentennial series. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
Networking remains the #1 method for sourcing and landing that new job. This presentation looks at both the real and psychological barriers that prevent us from being more effective and confident in networking. Includes practice and table work.
