The Read/Write Library in Chicago

An Unusual Library Finds a New Home. (The New York Times, 11/13/2011)

Excerpt: Formerly known as the Chicago Underground Library, Read/Write rejects the selectivity of traditional libraries and collects “anything from university press to handmade artists’ books to zines made by 13-year-olds,” Ms. Taylor said. “We want to give people a much broader sense of who’s out there.”

The library is located at 914 N. California Ave.
