HOME BUYING AND SELLING

In Search of Schnitzel Wiener Schnitzel. There’s no lack of recipes for it, but Hoffman Estates resident Helen Beers wanted a very specific recipe – the one she used to make every year for her husband on their anniversary. The problem was…it was from a 1963 Better Homes and Gardens cookbook she had given to her daughter. A cookbook that went up in flames when her daughter’s condo burned several years ago. But Helen, a Schaumburg Township District Library patron since 1973, knew just where to go for help with her dilemma. She went straight to our Reference Desk and relayed her situation. “Librarian Jane Rozek overheard the conversation and said she thought she had the book at home,” Helen said. “She didn’t, so she sent a different recipe, but it wasn’t quite the same.” Jane enlisted fellow librarians to help with the search, and together they found a PDF of the cookbook

online; this time with the exact recipe Helen wanted. “I made it the other day for our anniversary, and it was delicious!” Helen said she’s been a Library patron since the Hoffman Estates Branch was located in the village’s former fire station. She has fond memories of taking her children there to check out books, and now uses both the branch and Central Library locations. “When I need help finding something, I know just where to go,” she said. “Jane was beyond helpful with looking for that recipe. She was so nice, and other librarians have been so nice, too.” Whether you’re looking for a recipe, a biography, a how-to book, the history of Hollywood, tips on job-searching or the indigenous species of the Amazon rain forest, our Reference librarians can steer you in the right direction. Visit the Central Library or branches in Hoffman Estates and Hanover Park, call the Reference Desk or go online and ask via live chat. Bring your questions to us – we love a challenge!

Brookdale love their monthly gatherings.

“Reading is one of the great loves of my life,” said Barb, a regular at the book club. “With the book club, I’m introduced to books I would never pick up on my own.”

“You get different people’s reactions to what we’ve read,” said Virginia. “Like with this book, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, some of us thought back on our lives and said ‘Oh my, I’m glad I wasn’t raised in a family like that!’”

“Some of the books we discuss tackle difficult topics,” added Virginia. “But we have to read about prisoners of war and other terrible subjects so that we understand what happens in the world.” Each month, Senior Services Coordinator Lisa Nusret selects a book for the club to discuss.
