“Schaumburg has so much to offer. It’s a unique community with a wonderful support system for seniors. I talk Schaumburg up all the time!”

This is Jan. She’s a resident at Cedar Village of Schaumburg. And not only is she a fan of Schaumburg, but she specifically loves our deposit library in Cedar Village’s community room.Books on cart

“The deposit library has always been very popular here,” Jan said. “We like the new cart because it can hold more items and keeps them better organized.”

Outreach Associate Sandy Kurth stops by every other week to fill the deposit library at Cedar Village and at about a dozen other locations throughout our service area. She likes to chat with Jan and other residents to see what’s popular and what everyone is interested in reading and watching.

"Movies are my favorite. And I enjoy all genres,” Jan said. “I’ll watch westerns as an homage to my husband because that was his favorite. Also romance and comedy and even animated movies.”

Another deposit library location is inside the very popular Barn in Schaumburg.

“Seniors enjoy the convenience of the deposit libraries,” said Marina Lvovich, senior services manager for the Village of Schaumburg. “They come to The Barn for lunches, they come here for activities and having the deposit library here makes it like a one-stop shop.”

It’s quick and easy to borrow from our deposit libraries: no card necessary, no time limit, just take what you want and enjoy!

“We’re very lucky to have Schaumburg Library in our neck of the woods,” Marina said. “It’s great to partner with the Library on programs and services for seniors.”
