About the Library

Letter from the Executive Director Last fall, many of you joined our strategic planning process by taking part in a community survey, sharing valuable feedback about how we can best serve you and the needs of your neighbors. Earlier this year, our Board of Trustees approved our strategic plan, and now we’re working to put that plan into action! It’s an exciting time for us – a time when we’re thinking about the role our Library plays in our community. We know that an engaged reader is vital to our success in the community. Our current strategic plan has three areas of focus: connected, future ready and agile. Here, I want to share more about the first area of focus: connected. We are a community connector, actively removing barriers to access, meeting people in our Library and in our neighborhoods, and providing 27/7 access to online content. Here are some of the ways we’re looking forward to serving as a connection point for people, information and ideas: • Cultivating a sense of belonging and ensuring everyone in our community feels welcome to meet, learn and share at our Library. • Being present in underserved areas of the community, providing easy access to all the Library has to offer. • Creating opportunities to listen and respond to our community’s emerging needs. Are you reading this and wondering, “But what does that actually look like?” This means: • Bringing our Pop-Up Library to non-traditional locations like grocery stores or laundromats. • Talking to and listening to community groups to understand what’s happening right now in Schaumburg Township, both challenges and opportunities. • Reviewing our procedures and removing barriers to our spaces and services. We have a lot of work to do, but we’re ready. No, we’re more than ready - we’re delighted to do this work because it means we will be a better Library, the best Library for the Schaumburg Township community. I’ll see you around the Library! Annie Miskewitch Executive Director

TEEN PROGRAMS

FOR AGES 12-19

TREATING US TO TREATS Fast forward to September 2020, and Owen’s baking skills have grown tremendously and we’re in the early months of the pandemic.

Owen Dodson is soft-spoken, has a charming smile and is an outstanding baker. Oh, and he’s just 13. “My older brother took a cooking class when I was in preschool,” Owen said, “and I wanted to make delicious foods like that too, so I started ‘helping’ my mom and dad when they cooked in the kitchen.” Early on, Owen remembers making eggs, French toast and pancakes with his dad, and baking muffins and cookies with his mom.

“We were looking for different and exciting ways to offer video programs to our teens as we all followed the stay-at-home order,” said Teen Place Manager Joe Marcantonio. “We know Owen through his mom Amy who used to work at our Library. I thought the tweens and teens of our community would really enjoy videos made by a fellow teen – well, tween, at the time.”

“I have funny outtakes because I talk to myself while working out the steps in the recipe.” Joe reached out to Owen and Owen’s Treats was born. Owen has now made more than 30 episodes of Owen’s Treats and he’s baked everything from mini apple tarts and beignets to themed cupcakes and jelly-filled donuts.

To prepare for each episode, Owen digs through recipes, often consulting his mom’s collection of cookbooks. “She has more than 1,000 vintage cookbooks and recipe boxes,” Owen said. “I try to keep things easy and I like to tie my recipes in with holidays.” Even though the Library is now open, Owen continues to make his videos at home. “I do get nervous making the videos,” Owen said. “I have funny outtakes because I talk to myself while working out the steps in the recipe.” Owen continues to improve his baking and cooking skills, taking classes, watching videos, learning from his mom and just experimenting. “This is a hobby, though,” Owen said. “I want to do something with plants or agriculture.” You can find every episode of Owen’s Treats on YouTube at SchaumburgLibrary.tv. Owen would love to hear your suggestions for recipes for his episodes – leave those in the comments on YouTube or send them to us at teendesk@stdl.org.

HYBRID: ONE PROGRAM, TWO WAYS TO JOIN For many, one good thing to come out of the pandemic was online programs. You could enjoy our wonderful Library programming from the comfort of your home, without having to brave winter weather or search for a parking spot. But others truly missed in-person programs. Coming into the Library for a program was a time for you to meet with friends and neighbors, browse our collections and just get some time out of the house. Enter hybrid programs! These programs offer the best of both worlds: you can choose to attend in-person at the Library, or

stream them online from home. It’s one fantastic Library program presented in two different ways simultaneously.
