The prestigious Merit in Interior Architecture Award was presented to Dewberry Architects Inc. and the Schaumburg Township District Library by the American Institute of Architects, Northeast Illinois Chapter, on Oct. 10 during a ceremony at the Elmhurst Art Museum. The award was given for the library's Teen Place, which opened in November 2012 for library users ages 12 through 19.

"We are pleased that Dewberry Architects won this award," said Library Director Stephanie Sarnoff.

The modern design of the 6,000 square-foot Teen Place, along with its collaborative work stations, study areas and multipurpose program room with gaming stations, has drawn thousands of teens since its inception. A highlight of the area is the Digital Production Studio, complete with three professional quality cameras, a Tricaster and a green screen for producing music and videos, which can be edited on Teen Place's MacBook Pros. Fiction, non-fiction, textbooks, magazines and graphic novels are all available as well. Teen Place is located on the library's second floor.
