Unveiled in August 2015, this South Side Chicago Public Library branch is unlike any other in the city system. It’s 16,000 square feet, two stories and features a feng shui-influenced interior, and striking views of the Chicago skyline. The branch also includes Chinese language materials and a mural by CJ Hungerman entitled “Universal Transverse Immigration Proclamation,” an ode to the neighborhood’s history and character.
