    09/12/14: NBC Chicago's Mary Ann Ahern reports on new developments in the search for a site for President Obama's library. (Published Friday, Sept. 12, 2014)

    The pool of locations vying to become home to a potential Obama Presidential Library has reportedly been narrowed.

    The Chicago Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet reported Thursday that two Chicago sites -- in Lakeside and Bronzeville -- have been cut from the running. The University of Chicago and the University of Illinois Chicago, which previously announced three potential library and museum sites, remain as candidates.

    The Lakeside site was on the former site of U.S. Steel South Works, and the Bronzeville location focused on the area of the former Michael Reese Hospital.

    Locations in New York City and Hawaii are also being considered.
