As part of the National Library Week festivities and our effort to Go Green, Save Green, the Schaumburg Township District Library is sponsoring a Rain Barrel drawing extravaganza!

Ten rain barrels have been beautifully  painted with weather-resistant materials and are on display in the lobby of the Central Library.  The following groups generously stepped up to do the decorating:

  • Conant High School Art Club
  • Lauren Ramsey and Brianna Saviano from the Schaumburg High School Art Department
  •  Teen Corps
  • STDL Youth Services Department program participants
  • Hoffman Estates Art League
  • Schaumburg Park District
  • Schaumburg Garden Club
  • Prairie Woods Audubon
  • STDL Reference Department
  • STDL Extension Services Department

Tickets for the rain barrel drawing may be obtained from the Check-in Desk from Sunday, April 11 to Saturday, April 17. There is a limit of 5 per person with the suggested donation being $1 per ticket.  Proceeds will go to the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry. 

Stop by, take a look and enter the drawing for the rain barrel that would look best under your downspout!
