Newberry Library

Founded in 1887, the Newberry Library is one of Chicago's most historic cultural institutions. Two exhibition galleries on the main floor feature a rotating selection of treasures from the Newberry's collection of 1.6 million books, 600,000 maps, and 5 million manuscript pages. 

By telling timely stories that bridge the past and present, Newberry exhibitions explore the many ways that history lives on and continues to shape our lives.
