Chicago Public Library services are critical to helping individuals heal from the challenges of 2020. From creating new programs to adapting existing models to meet patrons’ evolving needs, librarians and staff are working to reach Chicagoans wherever they are—at home, online, or in the branches—with the resources they need to rebuild and renew their lives. Invite your friends and family to join in ensuring these critical resources continue to be available for everyone in need.
