The Library's New Clothes

2008_03_chipublib.gifIn news of the bored today, the Chicago Public Library finally updated their website. You know the one that was just white with a little bit of green and just linked to a bunch of PDFs? Now it's all pretty and red and green like, yeah, kind of like a Christmas tree, but the redesign is better organized and most exciting, has an entire section devoted to digital media with ebooks, audio books, and archival photos available.

So if you're too far away from Harold Washington and don't want to bother going to your local branch, check out the new website and don't forget to tell them what you think.
