It is located on a back road of Bensenville, right next to Blackhawk Middle School and only a few blocks away from Fenton High School.
The building itself is a single-story, ranch-style building: very long with only one floor.
I decided to report on this library because I lived in Bensenville for three years and I had always liked the Bensenville Library's cozy atmosphere.
In front, the brick walkway is protected by wooden shelter, still decorated for the holidays.
There are also benches along the walkway for patrons to enjoy outdoor reading during finer weather.
The front doors are wood, surrounded by cobblestone and glass. The theme of wood, cobblestone, and tinted glass is prevalent throughout the entire library.
The library's address, 200 S. Church, is displayed in the upper corner of the door. The library hours are printed in gold on the tinted glass:
Monday-Thursday 9 AM-9 PM
Friday 9 AM-6 PM
Saturday 9 AM-5 PM
Sunday 1 PM-5 PM
Even the bike rack is encased in cobblestone to add to the rustic atmosphere of the library grounds.
In the back of the library is a garden, viewable from the windows inside the building. This garden is aptly named the "Garden of Knowledge."
The statue is a casting of Robert Burns, a Scottish author and poet. It was donated to the library by a Bensenville family.
The photo does not do the garden justice; it is truly beautiful in person.
