Check out the Wide Selection in the Audiovisual Department


Byline: Susan Miura

There's a hidden treasure in the Schaumburg Township District Library that many of our patrons have already discovered. You won't find any books there, but you will discover a plethora of videos, DVDs, CD-ROMs, audio music tapes, audio books, sheet music and more in English as well as many other languages.

The Audiovisual Department, hard to miss with its "Town Square" sign in bright lights above the entrance, also presents a diverse selection of live entertainment as well as weekly feature films. And the best part is, these programs are always free and require no registration.

Let's start with upcoming programs. If you are a fan of Patsy Cline - and even if you aren't - don't miss singer Marvina Bowker from 7 to 8 p.m Oct. 6. Plan to be spellbound as Bowker remembers Patsy Cline through soulful vocals that bring new depths to tunes ranging from country to classic big band.

If music doesn't hold your interest, come for our "Comedy Mystery Halloween Night" from 7 to 8 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Rasmussen North Room. Before the days of video games, shopping malls, MTV and the Internet, families used to listen to radio shows such as Abbott and Costello, Superman, Groucho Marx, The Avenger, Gunsmoke and others. See and hear a radio re-enactment with the use of special tools necessary to make the sound effects. This special Halloween program is suitable for all ages.

Is theater more to your liking? Join us for "Love in the Middle Ages" from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 3 in the Rasmussen Room. This is the premier presentation of a new musical by local writer and composer Scott Urban. The complete performance will be showcased as a stylized reading, complete with music score and an entourage of talented singers and actors. This is a musical with an adult theme and recommended for an adult audience.

Feeling patriotic? "Songs of America" will blend music and narrative to chronicle songs and events from the Revolutionary War to the present. This program is scheduled from 7 to 8 p.m. Nov. 11 in the Audiovisual Dept. and is suitable for all ages.

For those who enjoy a good flick now and then, the library presents "Wednesday Night at the Movies" at 7 p.m. every Wednesday in the Audiovisual Dept. All movies are rated PG or PG-13. September will feature "Tearjerkers" while October's theme will be "Just a Little Scary." Feel free to pick up a list of upcoming titles in the Audiovisual Dept.

As for the collection itself, you'll be blown away by the diversity and quantity of materials we have to offer. In addition to large selections of country, rock, jazz, blues and gospel music, as well as our numerous movie videos (old and new), computer games and reference videos (travel, hobbies, science, biographies, etc. …
