Carter G. Woodson
Endeleo spearheaded a community-led effort for the complete renovation of the Carter G. Woodson Regional Library, one of only two regional libraries in the city. Thus far, the renovation includes the addition of a YOUMedia technology center. It is a safe space exclusively for teens to hang out and explore 21st-century digital technology that will empower and position them for professions in STEM (Science, Technology, Math and Engineering) and/or entrepreneurship opportunities.
This year the Chicago Public Library celebrated Juneteenth with a city-wide Juneteenth Reading Circle, the first systemwide Juneteenth event.
This virtual event took place on Thursday, June 17th, via CPL's YouTube channel and Facebook page.
Participants discussed Chicago author Richard Wright’s novel, "The Man Who Lived Underground", and the significance of its release in April 2021, nearly 80 years after it was written.
The adult services team at Woodson Regional Library has reserved several copies of the novel for our community members, stop by to get your copy soon!
