About Us

Creative Studios are not currently available for use due to the current time restrictions on Library use. This page will be updated when the Creative Studios are again available for use.

Creative Studio

The Creative Studio offers Elmhurst Public Library card holders access to high-end equipment and software needed to complete digital audio, visual, and graphics projects. We aim to provide useful tools for professional, personal, and school-related projects.

The Creative Studio consists of three sound proof rooms on the second floor of the Library. Room A is the largest, perfect for music recording or green screen photo sessions. Rooms B and C are smaller, designed for graphics work and more independent projects. All of the rooms are equipped with iMacs, as well as Adobe Creative Cloud, iMovie and Garage Band/Logic Pro software. Other equipment is available for check-out and use inside of the building.

Rooms are available for four hour increments. Reservations can be made by calling (630) 279-8696 and asking for the Information Desk. Creative Studio rooms will be held for 15 minutes past the beginning of the reserved time. Drop-ins are welcome!

Creative Studio Hours
Monday – Friday 9:00am-8:30pm
Saturday 9:00am-4:30pm
Sunday 1:00pm-4:30pm

Staff is available to help you get started on projects and answer general questions. More involved questions may require attendance at an upcoming Technology program, a Lynda.com video tutorial, using the Library’s informative collection or a scheduled appointment with a staff member.

Equipment and room usage are available to valid Elmhurst Public Library card holders and require the presentation of a valid photo ID (Drivers License, State ID, or High School ID). Adult supervision is required for anyone below the age of high school.
