A Different Kind of Library Created for the Same Purpose

A different kind of library was created in 2006 by Nell Taylor and a group of volunteers in Chicago. The Read/Write Library collects and preserves local self published pamphlets, books, and other materials by local citizens. Ms. Taylor dreams that one day the library’s collection will be a digital representation of Chicago’s cultural history.  

The reasons why we collect and preserve knowledge and culture will never change. The way we do those things has changed and will continue to change and grow.
