CPL – Rogers Park Branch – 6907 N. Clark Street
Took a trip to check out the nearby Rogers Park branch of the Chicago Public Library and found a warm neighborhood spot. First established by the Roger’s Park Women’s Club in 1894 on Clark Street, the current space opened on June 8, 1999.
The parking lot is pretty tiny but there’s lots of street parking around. Walking up to the library there’s a nice outdoor courtyard, a solid place to take a break while studying.
Artwork by painter Al Tyler and sculptor Jo Hormuth is featured throughout the two floors. The children’s section is charming and inviting, making for an overall very nice neighborhood branch.
I love how all the CPL locations I’ve visited utilize the stairwells for art. This featured black and white maps of various cities, including, naturally, Chicago.
So residents of Rogers Park, head over to your library, hang out, and enjoy a good book, there’s plenty of space for all 🙂
