Some Chicagoans are collecting a quirky collection of cookbooks, zines and poems for an unusual library. For starters, it accepts any printed material connected to the Chicago area and it’s not just for readers – it’s meant to get people creating work, too. The Chicago Underground Library has been around for a while, but it’s got a new name, and a new home that opens Friday in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood.
