Bensenville Public Library Grounds

The Bensenville Community Library is a public, state tax-funded library that serves all patrons in the Bensenville Community.

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.

Nice blog Maria! I can tell why you dig this library; it seems very cozy and rustic. Based on your blog, it seems a lot more welcoming then my hometown library! It's nice that you got to talk to a librarian about issues that we've been discussing like vandalism etc.

I really liked your library!! I would love to go there to do my work because it would be a nice escape from everything. Everything looks so warm and welcoming. I'm surprised there wasn't more people in the library. I thought it was really interesting that COD used the space in the Bensenville library.

I love the design and architecture of this library; the cobblestone provides such a comfortable and welcoming feel, despite it being stone. I would also love to see the garden, because very few libraries have such a wonderful feature.
