Adult Computer Lab
The Adult Computer Lab is located on the second floor toward the back of the library and is accessible to patrons age 15 and older. The computers are open to anyone on a first come, first served basis; however, there is a time limit when there are patrons waiting to use the computers. All patrons must sign in at the Computer Assistance Desk, and non-cardholders must obtain a card to print materials, whereas cardholders may deduct money from their library cards. Adult and Senior computer classes are offered there through the library as well.
FIND IT is Schaumburg’s all-in-one online search, with 80 databases organized into 19 categories, and access to full-text issues of old journals. The library’s “digital branch,” STDL 24/7, offers 1500 popular titles and Online Book Clubs, which send participants portions of a book over a week, allowing patrons to decide if they want to check the book out from the library. People can also submit questions, use research databases and Homework Help, find a Community Group, and learn about the history of Schaumburg Township at STDL 24/7.
