Elmhurst Public Library

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>More than 30,000 Elmhurst residents—70 percent of the city—have Elmhurst library cards, which isn't surprising considering how much the library has to offer. From databases for researching geneology to its video game collection, the library is a popular spot for more than just books.</p>
<p>According to the library's annual report, through April 2010 the facility circulated more than 1.5 million items. Nearly a half-million visits to the library's website were logged and an average of more than 1,500 people walked through the library's doors each day. The library is a popular meeting space for students as well as businesses, local clubs and organizations.</p> <p>The coffee shop, named More than Mocha, offers gourmet brewed coffee, espresso, teas and pastries. A drive-up window and outdoor book drops are located near the parking lot on the north side of the building. At the drive-up window, patrons can return and check out materials and renew their library cards.</p> <p>The library managed a budget of $7 million last fiscal year.</p>
