History

In 1960, it was nothing more than a bookmobile, but in 1962 voters approved the formation of a tax-supported Schaumburg Township Public Library. The following year, it settled into its own facility – a house near the corner of Roselle and Schaumburg Roads. Magazines were housed in the bathroom on a board above the tub, adult fiction in a nearby bedroom and children’s books in the living room. 1960 (MCMLX) was a leap year starting on Friday (the link is to a full 1960 calendar). ... Year 1962 (MCMLXII) was a common year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1962 calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


After four years, a bigger, better facility was built on Library Lane. More books, more resources and programs...and more patrons. Through the years, demand continued to grow and the library expanded to meet the needs of a growing population. The Hoffman Estates Branch opened in 1976, followed by the Hanover Park Branch in 1993. Year 1976 (MCMLXXVI) was a leap year starting on Thursday (link will display full calendar) of the 1976 Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday (link will display full 1993 Gregorian calendar). ...


The quiet, farming community of Schaumburg Township is now home to 134,000 residents and numerous office complexes. Eventually, the library board decided even more space was necessary to better serve the people of Schaumburg Township. In 1998, the central library moved into it’s current location on Roselle Rd. In 2002, the Hoffman Estates Branch moved into a larger facility, and in 2006, the Hanover Park branch moved out of its store front location and into its own building. Year 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday (link will display full 1998 Gregorian calendar). ... For album titles with the same name, see 2002 (album). ...
