Welcome to the Chicago History Online Library! The Library is a supplement to my main blog, The Chicago History Journal and continues my mission to provide links to websites relevent to Chicago history. The Library will primarily feature digitized non-fiction books on Chicago history. Each post will feature a book or digital library. In addition, there is a page dedicated to classic Chicago literature available online plus specialty pages focusing on select authors. The section marked “My Library” is a work in progress and will be a record of the Chicago history books in my personal library.
A few years ago, I became fascinated with Chicago’s history. I am not a historian, a scholar or a teacher. Call me an “interested party” with a strong desire to share the fun. The Library is in its infancy so please excuse the sparce pages. It will grow quickly, I suspect. My hope is that you will find something of interest to read or discover a great online resource for study.
WELCOME…The Library is Open
