An Unusual Library Finds a New Home

Chicago News Cooperative – “On a recent Saturday afternoon in Humboldt Park, a small band of volunteers scrambled to put the finishing touches on their library’s new home — the sixth in as many years for the Read/Write Library, Chicago’s largest depository of grass-roots printed materials. “After all the trials and tribulations we’ve had, we’re cashing in our space karma,” said Nell Taylor, the founder and executive director of the all-volunteer, donation-financed library, which officially reopened on Friday. Since its founding in 2006, the library has been a perennial refugee, but Ms. Taylor said she believes that she has finally found a safe haven: a century-old, two-story yellow brick building on a quiet stretch of California Avenue.”
