The pandemic has been incredibly difficult for all of us in more ways than one. But the Library reminds us that we are not alone. Through its digital programs and virtual events, Chicago Public Library continues to strengthen a sense of community across 77 neighborhoods—even if we are apart.
Access to free, high-quality summer learning programs is more critical today than ever before. Together, Chicago Public Library, Chicago Public Library Foundation and WITS will empower thousands of Chicago families to fight the COVID learning slide by connecting them to an unparalleled network of educational services and supports.
The Library may look and feel different for a little while. But we are here for you. The Library and the Library Foundation’s commitment to empowering Chicagoans and communities navigate the challenges of recovery are stronger than ever. We are all in this together.
For one night, the Library’s most ardent champions and advocates gathered to raise more than $2.2 million in celebration of everything that the Library stands for−access, equity, and opportunity for every Chicagoan.
