Literature & Libations

The Chicago Public Library Foundation Associate Board is proud to present Literature & Libations: Rooftop Edition! Please join us for the last party of the summer season with food, drink and networking while taking in the views from Sterling Bay’s rooftop bar and lounge.

If hanging out on a cool rooftop eating and drinking is not cool enough for you, Chicago Public Library’s Special Collections team has curated a unique exhibit of Chicago’s entrepreneurial spirit, focusing on food and beverage! These fantastic archivists will be on hand to guide visitors through the exhibit. Our beer partner, Maplewood Brewery, will share their beer knowledge—and beer samples!
