The Arcade Age

Retro Arcade Fun PLAY ARCADE GAMES IN THE LIBRARY! Saturday, November 19, 2022, to Sunday, January 15, 2023 / First Floor Join us to celebrate the great age of arcade games and play some classic arcade consoles – in the library – like Pac-Man, Tetris, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong Junior and more. The Arcade Age explores the history of video arcade games through exhibits and gameplay, just as they were intended to be experienced - in an arcade! The exhibit tells the story of video arcade games; from the pioneers in the early ‘40s and ’50s to the golden age in the late ‘70s and early ’80s to its crash, revival and ultimate decline in the ‘90s. It is a story of the creative and innovative people who explored groundbreaking technologies, the games that sprung from their ingenuity and a culture that was shaped by their developments. All of the games are set to free-play. Twelve games will be stationed throughout the library for play for all ages and will include unforgettable favorites like QBert, Street Fighter 2 and Joust. Get retro at the library and join the fun this winter at The Arcade Age, available during regular library hours. For more information, visit ahml.info/arcade. Exhibit developed by Cradle of Aviation Museum and Education Center and sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

ONLINE RESOURCES It’s all there.

Services and online resources for nonprofits If you are affiliated with a nonprofit organization that seeks grant funding or you are looking to identify nonprofit organizations that deal with specific topics/issues, make sure to visit the Services > Business & Nonprofit Services section of the library website. There, you’ll learn about the library’s services for and related to nonprofits, and you’ll also find links to several valuable online resources to help locate useful information.

• THE FOUNDATION DIRECTORY ONLINE AND GRANTS TO INDIVIDUALS These resources are made available as part of the library’s participation in the Funding Information Network, managed by Candid (a major clearinghouse of grants information). Locate funding sources based on their specialties and learn about their requirements and application processes. In accordance with Candid’s rules, these resources must be used inside the library (on any PC connected to the library’s Wi-Fi). However, organizations can apply to Candid for one year’s access to their “Go for the Gold” program, which provides eligible organizations with one year’s remote access to their “FDO Essentials” product.

• NATIONAL DIRECTORY OF NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS A directory of contact and descriptive information on over 1.4 million U.S. local, regional and national organizations. Advanced search allows selecting organizations by topic, membership size, revenue/income, total assets, deductibility, etc. This is actually part of the Gale Directory Library, which also includes access to the Encyclopedia of Associations (both the National and Regional/Local editions), which provide similar searching for professional organizations, nonprofits, interest groups, etc.

If you need assistance using these resources, please contact the library by phone, website contact form or chat. AHML cardholders can request a one-on-one appointment to learn how to use these tools, as well. If your nonprofit organization operates within Arlington Heights, remember that it is eligible for a business library card, which allows you to take advantage of a wide variety of library resources.

FAVORITE THINGS

Sports Edition Monday, November 21, 7-7:45 p.m. / Zoom

In every story there will be heroes and there will be villains. There will be triumphs and there will be disappointments. There will be winners and there will be losers. But what happens off the pitch, or outside the field, or courtside, can often be as dramatic – if not more so – than what happens on. Grab your favorite beverage and meet staff as they share the very best books, movies and TV shows about the sports we love and athletes who play them. Then share your own favorites with us in the discussion that follows and leave with a great list of recommendations.

The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune Monday, November 14, 7-8 p.m. / Cardinal Room Thursday, December 1, 10-11 a.m. / Conference Room H

The House in the Cerulean Sea is an unabashedly optimistic and well-meaning story about a tightly wound caseworker who is pushed out of his comfort zone when he’s sent to observe a remote orphanage for magical children. This breezy and fun contemporary fantasy mixed in with creatures of lore will offer a profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place. BOOKS AND BREWS
