Garden Reads

It's officially spring and we're ready to welcome some slightly warmer weather even if it means rain! If you're a gardener, appreciate someone else's, or are even just thinking about reading outside (because that counts, too!), some of our librarians have some garden-related reads ready for you. While you're at it, swing by our newly launched Seed Library so you can grow something of your own!

For Families

Toys, books and learning devices are just a few of the Library offerings used by Schaumburg residents Chrissie and Marthinus Steyn and their two young children. A psychotherapist, Chrissie said they love coming to the Library to choose books, check out baby toys, and let the children play in Youth Services.
