Do You Want to Meet with Your Neighbors to Co-Create a Vision of What Chicagoans Want our Libraries to Be?

HERE’S What's Happened Since January’s Library Cuts:

ñ   FEWER WORKERS AND LIBRARY STAFF

ñ   SHORTER HOURS

ñ   LONGER LINES

ñ   CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS & BOOKS

 

K E E P   C H I C A G O ’ S   L I B R A R I E S   S T R O N G !

-  Do You Use the Libraries to Find Employment, Do Homework, Apply for College/ Scholarships/ Loans/ Social Security Benefits, or to Read, Speak and Listen to Others in our Community?

-   Do You Want the City to Rehire All 100 Pages Laid Off in January 2012 so Libraries can Reopen All Day on Mondays and Bring Back our Children's Programs?

-   Do You Want our Libraries to Reopen Monday through Thursday 9 am-9 pm, Friday & Saturday like they were until 2010, and Sundays Too?

-   Do You Want more Library Staff and Resources Like Books, Computers, Educational Materials, Employment Info, Social Service Workshops, and CD/DVDs, etc. and in the neighborhood languages?
