Chicago Public Library serves as a critical access point for all Chicagoans. Our doors may be closed temporarily, but we are here to keep you learning, connecting, and growing.

We know there are a lot of uncertainties, but the one certainty we do have is that our Library will reopen and it will be more essential than ever – to give children with free educational support, help teens explore inspiring pathways for their future, and provide adults with access to technology and skills that can help them navigate the digital world.
