Libraries - 2011 Visitors by Location

The Chicago Public Library opened four new locations in 2011: Greater Grand Crossing (4/23/11); Dunning (5/6/11); Daley, Richard M.-W Humboldt (7/8/11) and Little Village (10/3/11). Edgewater closed 6/16/11 for construction of a new branch; a bookmobile for holds pickup and returns opened 6/24/11. Altgeld closed for extended periods in July and August for air conditioning installation. Back of the Yards closed permanently 8/22/11 due to repeated flooding. All locations were closed February 2-February 3 due to weather. In addition, many locations experienced sporadic closures in summer 2011 due to weather-related issues. Visits to Water Works are not counted due to its location in the Chicago Visitor Information Center.

Asterisk (*) after location name indicates that count does not reflect the total building visitor count due to location of traffic counter. Community room and program traffic are not included in totals.
