One Book, One Community is a time for us all to read the same book, sparking conversations about the book and its themes. Read the book. Join the conversation. It’s that simple! Join us this winter, December – February, as we read Room by Emma Donoghue, the bestselling novel that was adapted into an Oscar-winning film. Let’s come together to discuss the book’s themes: community, family ties, isolation and resilience. Your whole family can join in! We’ve selected a picture book, a chapter book and a YA novel with themes similar to Room, so kids can also be part of the conversation.  • Ivan, The Remarkable True Story of the Shopping Mall Gorilla by Katherine Applegate – a picture book recommended for ages 5-8  • The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate – an illustrated chapter book recommended for ages 9-12 

• Stolen by Lucy Christopher – a novel recommended for ages 12-19  Books are now available to check out. A limited number of free copies of Room and our books for young readers will be available on a first come, first served basis beginning Jan. 2 at all Library locations. These special copies of Room have been signed by author Emma Donoghue! This year’s One Book, One Community titles were chosen because they offer an opportunity for individuals and families to discuss some compelling issues that we’re all facing right now. We hope the themes of community, family ties, isolation and resilience. will resonate with you as we all continue to live with a global pandemic and other issues that challenge us to cope with situations outside of our control, manage feelings of isolation and find new ways to connect with our families and communities.

“Fill your house with stacks of books, in all the crannies and all the nooks.”

PROGRAMS

Steyn Family Chrissie said, adding they also “pop over for some resources” when Everly gets interested in something new. “She’s really into the 50 nifty states right now,” Chrissie said. “She’s memorized a song about the states so we are trying to teach her more about the states, like where they are, etc. The library has great resources for that.” 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. “During the initial quarantine, we picked up a huge stack of books every week. Now we are back in school, so we request a few books weekly that line up with the theme of Everly’s classroom,”

Marthinus, who manages the food and clothing programs for the Care Center at Willow Creek Community Church, said they like to check out a learning tablet for Everly before going on a long trip. “It’s great to have that option available,” he said. Chrissie agreed, saying she really appreciates the Library’s free resources. “I love knowing I don’t have to hold all the stuff in our home and can rotate toys, books and learning devices. It’s a huge gift.”
