The Chicago Library
[photo credit wikipedia ;)]
When the Chicago Fire happened in 1871
the Queen of England felt so bad that they had lost
all of their books (assuming they had).
She took a huge collection of her personal library and
donated them to Chicago.
Chicago built an amazing Library to house
The fascinating part is two-part!
1) Chicago had no books prior to the fire!
2) They built an amazing library
specifically for the Queens collection,
which by far is my favorite place to see in Chicago.
The Library also shares a space
as a Memorial to Vetarans of Wars.
