Starting this week, ten Chicago public libraries will open on Sunday for the first time ever, Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced on Twitter.
The branches opening this Sunday are Altgeld, Austin, Back of the Yards, Chinatown, Edgewater, Independence, Merlo, Mt. Greenwood, Richard M. Daley and South Shore.
“Learning never ends. That's why every Chicagoan will be able to visit any @chipublib branch on Sundays by the end of this year,” Lightfoot tweeted.
