About Us

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.
