A week before Chicago Underground Library celebrated its fifth anniversary, the February blizzard blew in one of our windows, forcing us to shelve our snow-damaged party hats and hit the road.

We've gone mobile with Pop Up Libraries, but we need your support to establish a new home.

Join us on June 24th at Beauty Bar for a belated birthday benefit extravaganza featuring some of Chicago's best DJs (and writers!), a photobooth, and a chance to win one of a dozen homemade birthday cakes in our cakewalk!

In honor of Printers' Ball and the survival power of print, we want to see your best PAPER PARTY HAT. Whether it's a classic folded newspaper style, a giant origami crane or just a plain old cardboard cone, there can never be too many hats on the dancefloor.
