Celebrate great stories in a year full of plot twists.
Each year, the Library Foundation honors artists who bring great stories to life— who challenge us, inspire us, and help us see the world in ways we never knew possible.
On December 9, 6:30 pm, every Library Lover is invited as we host the Chicago Public Library Foundation virtually for the first time ever.
Join us in honoring:
Donna LaPietra – Inaugural Civic Award
Nate Marshall – 21st Century Award
Isabel Wilkerson – Carl Sandburg Literary Award
No ticket is required and gifts at all levels are welcome.
Support for our annual Awards is an investment in Chicago Public Library and the millions of Chicagoans who rely on CPLfor access to information, technology, and educational resources.
