Defend Our Libraries!
Do You Want to Meet with Your Neighbors to Co-Create a Vision of What Chicagoans Want our Libraries to Be?
WHETHER YOU USE THE LIBRARY A LITTLE OR A LOT, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Join Us to Celebrate National Library Week April 14-18
Attend one of the nine meetings happening at libraries across the city. See below for details.
HERE’S What's Happened Since January’s Library Cuts:
ñ FEWER WORKERS AND LIBRARY STAFF

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?
