Meet the New Chicago Public Library

What a difference a day makes. The Chicago Public Library has unveiled a radical web makeover. The shiny new website also includes a new online catalog that is faster, prettier and more user-friendly than the old, clunky search. And, finally, library users can place holds on materials through the online catalog. See something you want? Just click "Place on Hold" and enter your library account information, and the item can be sent to your nearest branch library for pickup. Awesome—and long overdue. Congratulations, CPL!
