Quotes

"This is yet another example of Mayor Emanuel`s innovative efforts to hear first-hand from residents across Chicago,” said Craig Chico, Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council. "Members of my community welcome the opportunity to engage in a direct dialogue with their fellow residents on ways to improve our neighborhood and the city.""
...Rob bring tremendous experience to the campaign as well as a strong commitment to our professional community," said ALA President Courtney Young. "There are unprecedented opportunities ahead for the Association, as a leading national institution and around the globe. They will do a great job engaging people in our mission to create more future opportunities for individuals and programs. I look forward to working with both of them over the next year."
"The thing that will intrigue people most," Durica says, "is that what is considered offensive or charged is so history-specific. Works that are now considered innocuous and silly were once controversial. The program sheds light on these stories. You'll never listen to 'Wake Up Little Susie' the same way ever again."
"Nowadays, a library is more than a place to shelve books," Alderman Margaret Laurino said in a statement. "The old building wasn't designed to serve us the way we need today."
