About Schaumburg Township District Library

OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE RELEVANT INFORMATION, BOOKS, MEDIA, TECHNOLOGY AND PROGRAMS FOR ALL AGES IN A SAFE AND FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT THROUGH THE SERVICE OF WELL TRAINED STAFF.

After careful consideration, we’re extending our hours of service at all locations. Hours are subject to change without notice. All staff and patrons are required to wear a mask at all times while in the Library. Please also continue to wash your hands thoroughly and regularly, and practice safe social distancing while in the Library. Our staff continues to clean and sanitize, but we need your help to keep everyone safe.  Please limit your Library visit to a maximum of 2 hours per day. We continue to have reduced capacities at all locations, so keeping your visit brief will allow us to serve as many people as possible.

PROGRAMS FOR

ALL AGES DRIVE-UP WINDOW REOPENS With our renovation complete, we’re ending Curbside Pick-Up at the Central Library and putting the Drive-Up Window back into service. To use the Drive-Up Window, just place an item on hold (selecting “Drive-Up” as the pick-up location), wait to get a notification that your items are ready, then come to the Library. Please note there is a limit of 5 items per car at the Drive-Up Window.

LOCKERS OFFER NO-TOUCH PICKUP Our lockers have arrived and are available for use! We know many of you will love this new, no-touch way to pick up materials from the Central Library in Schaumburg. To use the lockers, simply go online and place your Library books or videos on hold, select “Lockers - Central” as pick up location, then come to the Library when you receive an email or call saying your items are ready for pickup. Once you arrive, press the “Get Started” button on the screen, then scan your Library card or type in the number and PIN. You’ll see a list of your requested items. If it’s correct, press “accept” and your locker will open. After retrieving your items, just close the locker door and you’re all set! The lockers are located along the wall near the West entrance.

Located in the Central Library lobby, our four self-checkouts are user-friendly, with easy prompts that will allow you to check out in seconds.
