DISCOVERY STARTS AT THE LIBRARY.

DISCOVERY STARTS AT THE LIBRARY.

Librarians can help you find your “aha!” moment, whether you’re researching in the stacks, innovating in a makerspace or embracing creativity in an arts program. Grammy-winning artist Chance the Rapper recorded his first mixtape in the Chicago Public Library’s YOUmedia studio*—Chance is just one of many visionaries who got started by exploring at the library.

Learn what can you do to help spread the word about the important role of libraries in people’s lives. 

Because \"eureka\" moments happen here.
