Our Centennial Celebration Begins

The library will be 100 years old soon, and to celebrate we are planning a series of special events. The first of these events will take place on Monday, April 6th at 7:00, with a program on another important centennial - that of the Burnham Plan. The year 2009 marks the centennial of Daniel Burnham’s visionary plan for Chicago and its environs and this slide lecture explores the Burnham plan along with its origins and sources. Learn about the full scope of the 1909 plan and its relationship to European and American precedents with art historian Jeff Mishur.

We have many more exciting events planned in honor of our Centennial - for more information check out our newsletter, contact us or just watch this space!
