All four candidates were newcomers competing for two, 6-year seats on the library board. Brody Garkisch ran for the board in 2009 and lost.

Brody Garkisch is board secretary for the Arlington Heights Crime Stoppers and has a degree in public policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. She has spent 25 years working on budgets and writing grants for nonprofits and government agencies.

Zyck has been on the housing commission since 2008, is on the PTA at Ivy Hill School and serves as a Cubmaster for Cub Scout Pack 468 in Arlington Heights. He works in marketing and said he hopes to help the library better advertise all it has to offer.

"I'm just so thrilled that enough people in the village trusted me to step up and help this library," Zyck said. "I'm so looking forward to helping them continue the success they've had."
