We had such a busy month that we nearly missed exploring the Building da Vinci Exhibit at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. Thank goodness a day off of school today gave us the chance to take a peek! While not huge, it is certainly an intriguing aside in the center of the library. I have been truly enjoying all of the special exhibits that AHML has been bringing to Arlington Heights and this is no exception.
