Work hard, play hard! As much as we love the Library, we also love to get away for a bit and head to the beach. But we'll never miss an opportunity to bring along a little light reading, which means we've got some perfect beach read (or poolside if that's your preference) recommendations. We've tossed in some movie picks, too, for when you need some downtime out of the sun.
Young people ages 15 to 18 with current Schaumburg Library cards are invited to apply to be Student Advisory Trustees on the Schaumburg Library Board.

Although he lived more than 400 years ago, Shakespeare's work continues to be an influence today. Books and movies with a fresh take on the bard's plays are still popular — and sometimes we might not even realize their origin! In honor of his April birthday, we asked staff to tell us their favorite Shakespeare-inspired titles.
