The library is a great source for finals studying and it keeps me concentrated for studying.”

— Delaney Jensen

In addition to Brainfuse, the Schaumburg Library, Illinois’s second largest library, offers students many accommodations for different age groups, including quiet rooms for studying or working in groups, access to computers and other technologies, test proctoring, and workshops designed for students of all ages, like 3D design and printing. 

“The library is a great source for finals studying, and it keeps me concentrated for studying,” Delaney Jensen stated. 

Not only does the library offer academic tools, but it provides entertainment. The library offers video games, computers, movies, and meeting areas inside. Online, you can find a catalog of movies and games. 

So the next time you need help academically or a movie to take a break from all that studying, look no further than our local Schaumburg Library.
