This library is so big, they named an el platform after it! Eight stories worth of books, electronic media, and events are just a few Pink Line stops away.

The main branch of the Chicago Public Library is an architectural treasure. Take a close look at the facade of the upper floors and then watch Batman: The Dark Knight.
