It's Not Just a Book Thing...Part Deaux!

Welcome to Sundays in My City, a most fascinating look a places around our beautiful country, as well as places unknown.  Each week, San Francisco's Blogger Extraordinaire, Unknown Mami, invites us to visit and share places through our pictures and posts. 

I recently wrote (bragged) about our wonderful, extraordinary, incredible library in Schaumburg, Illinois!  For a quick recap on my post, click here.  I shared some information and pictures about the Teen Place which had not yet opened.  I paid a visit recently to the Schaumburg Township Library and am happy to share pictures of the finished Place, which has been thriving since it's official opening in November.

Everywhere one looks, there are electrical outlets for teens to plug their various instruments of technology.  I can just imagine the electric bill should there be a full house in the Place!  As you can see, the books have been added, the dvd/cd/game rental box is in place, and the substations are ready for action.  My visit was made in the morning when teens are "in school", so it may appear to be a little empty in my pictures.

My favorite place is the multi-purpose-game-instruction-multi-tasking room that is separated by a sort of "see-through garage door."  In addition to the individual screens, which can accommodate up to four players, there is a mega screen that can be lowered for "crowd" uses (or control).

Oh, don't forget that we have a most inviting coffee shop located in the foyer of the library, just behind the cute guy reading on the bench!  It's a great place to grab a quick snack, or warm up with a great cup of coffee! That couch calls my name every single time I pass the shop!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please visit Unknown Mami's Sundays In My City by clicking on the logo below.

We've both been busy today! I think you need to work in that library - the kids would LOVE you. Icy up there? We have just yucky cold rain with 68 degrees on the way. Welcome to St. Louis.

Your library looks awesome! Our library is pretty great too! I am always trying to get the kids I work with to utilize the Philadelphia Public Library. They are such great places of knowledge and FUN! : )

When I was younger I LOVED the library. I can't even imagine having one like that!! Very cool.

I love your library. I wish more people used them. It's a shame that people would prefer to sit at home and watch TV all day.

I love this idea and want to see it at every library.
