A week before Chicago Underground Library’s 5th anniversary, the February blizzard blew in one of our windows, forcing us to shelve our snow-damaged party hats (read more about it in New City and Chicagoist). In the meantime, we've gone mobile with Pop Up Libraries, but we need your support to establish a new home. Come celebrate our belated birthday and help us get back on our feet.

In honor of Printers' Ball and the survival power of print, we want to see your best PAPER PARTY HAT. Whether it's a classic folded newspaper style, a giant origami crane or just a plain old cardboard cone, there can never be too many hats on the dancefloor. Best one wins a top secret prize!

Purchase advance tickets for a minimum donation of $10.00 (all online tickets are will call) here. All proceeds from the event benefit Chicago Underground Library, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit . Donations will help support Structurally Sound Pop Up Libraries and our quest for a new space.
