The library in which The Breakfast Club takes place was actually constructed in the gymnasium of Maine North High School specifically for the film. The school closed down in 1982, two years before filming began. The building had been used for park district purposes and the Chicago Blitz sports team before the Illinois state police bought it, turning it into a police station. "Library Revolution" was one of the titles considered for the film.
