The Holiday Book Drive is back. Share the gift of reading this holiday season by donating new children's books for the Arlington Heights Memorial Library's Holiday Book Drive from now through Wednesday, Dec. 1.

All books will go to low-income families through the Wheeling Township Adopt-a-Family program. The library is collecting new books for children and teens from infancy to age 18. Books in Spanish are also welcome.


Drop off donations in the collection bin on the first floor of the library.
