Grand Opening of the Read/Write Library Chicago

This weekend marks the grand opening of the new Read/Write Library Chicago (formerly the Chicago Underground Library). The opening of their new space and re-branding will take place this Friday (tomorrow!), November 11th.

Visitors can expect this celebration to have some live jazz (form Studio 914), Reading/Writing performances, activities, crafts and games to help you explore the stacks.

The first 50 people will receive a limited edition poster by Vida Sačić (who designed the library's new logo) and April Sheridan (who printed these at Columbia College's Center for Book and Paper Arts).

If you have something to contribute to the library's collection of self-published works, bring it on by. This night only you can SIY - Shelve It Yourself.

The event is free and open to the public (children are welcome). The Read/Write Library is located 914 N. California (use the Walton Entrance)
