Help Us With Our Quest To Better Serve Those That Attend Our Library’s Genealogy Program During February, March And April 2018; We Will Be Scanning The Schaumburg Library Cards Of Those In Attendance; It Is Optional; Your Information Will Be Kept Private

Hi Everyone!

Schaumburg Township District Library

During the months of February, March and April of 2018 our library will be doing some research on our program attendees that have a Schaumburg Township District Library Card. It will be for more programs than just our monthly Genealogy Program.

We’ll be scanning Schaumburg Library cards at some of our regular programs to help us learn more about who attends our programs and the types of programs our community wants and needs.

While it’s not required that we scan your card to participate in the program, we do encourage it so we can continue to learn and grow and meet the needs of our community.

Your information will be kept private.

At our genealogy programs for February, March and April, I will have my laptop with me and a bar code scanner attached to the laptop.  Sometime before we start the actual program and while everyone is seated, I plan on just moving through the aisles of tables and scanning only those cards that are from Schaumburg Township District Library. It is OPTIONAL, but it would be very helpful if you would allow me to scan your Schaumburg library card.

I really hope that you can help our library with this project.  It is painless and it will not disrupt the program.

Thank you in advance for helping us better serve you!
