The November 11 is Veterans Day, a time to honor veterans and thank them for their service. In this same spirit on every day throughout the year, the Arlington Heights Memorial Library is pleased to offer a special library card for current and former members of the United States Armed Forces. In addition to offering the same benefits as standard resident library cards, this card also allows the cardholder to print up to the cost equivalent of 100 black and white letter pages per week at no charge. The card is distinct in its patriotic design and any active-duty military or veteran resident of Arlington Heights is eligible.
