Studio Suites

The Studio suites are spaces for digital content creation, post-production editing, and digitization. Staff are available to troubleshoot small issues but in-depth assistance is not available.

Using the Suites

Adults and teens in high school with a Skokie Public Library card or registered reciprocal library card can reserve a suite for up to three hours once every 24 hours (no extensions). Reservations may be made up to one week in advance. Walk-up reservations may be possible depending on availability. Reservations will only be held for 15 minutes after the start time. Studio suites close 30 minutes before the library closes. 

Reserve online or call 847-673-7774. 

When you arrive in the Studio, speak with a staff person to confirm your reservation. 

No food is allowed in the suites. Non-alcoholic beverages in covered containers are permitted. You are responsible for any damage to the equipment or space.
