CCC's 10 Year Anniversary Celebration Comes To A Close

Chicago Collections Celebrating 10 Years!

With the end of 2022, CCC's 10 year anniversary celebration formally came to  a close.  CCC was proud to host a wide variety of  free public programs and events spotlighting Chicago's diverse communities.  Some of the activities included a discussion with Librarian of Congress Dr. Carla Hayden, the launch of a new digital exhibit (A Glimpse Back at Chicago's Communities and Neighborhoods), and a poetry competition for Chicagoland high school students (Making History Come Alive Through Words). CCC's offering of innovative programming grew its community while highlighting members' archival collections.

A complete listing and recap of anniversary events and programs can be found HERE.    

Chicago Collections is grateful for the anniversary funding from the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation and an anonymous donor.
