Time seems to have blurred: there's time before COVID, and time with it. In this review, we're focusing on our 2020-21 fiscal year – that's July 2020 through June 2021. A full year of masks, hand sanitizer and social distancing. But also a year of innovation and forward progress at our Library.

You can take a look at our full Year in Review, but here are a few successes we're particularly proud to highlight:

  • In September 2020, we completed the renovation on our first floor. If you haven't seen it yet, and you feel comfortable coming inside, please stop by and see it - it's beautiful and fuctional.
  • We extended our free WiFi signal to the parking lots at all our locations. And, thanks to a partnership with the Village of Schaumburg, the signal extends throughout Town Square, too. Sit outside or in your car and join our WiFi from your own device to get some work (or online shopping) done!
  • We added our Pick-Up Lockers for an easy, contactless way to pick up items you place on hold.
  • Our more than 2,200 online and pick-up programs attracted people throughout our community, across the country, and even around world! We had attendees from places like Bangladesh, Japan and Sri Lanka.

Thank you for your continued support and patronage throughout the year – both online and in person. We exist to serve our community and are truly grateful to have such wonderful people to serve.
