Chicago Underground Library Finds (Yet Another) New Home

The Chicago Underground Library has had a number of homes over the past six years, and it recently added a new address to the list. The library now resides on the second floor at 621 W. Belmont Ave., in part of the Red Tape Theatre's space within St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Lakeview.

If you're not familiar with CUL, it's an open library devoted to independent and small press media produced in the Chicago area. Its holdings include books, magazines, zines, journals, broadsides, newspapers and art books. In some cases, the publications in its collection are the only known remaining copies, making the library an invaluable resource for anyone interested in independent media. If you'd like to peruse the stacks, stop by on a Tuesday between 7 and 9pm or a Saturday between 1 and 5pm, or make an appointment.
