Reception Gallery Reception Room

At the top of the staircase on the Library's second floor, this inviting hall features a view of the Museum and Union Square Park and may be used as a single venue for evening social events or may be rented together with the Multi-Purpose Room to offer additional space for conferences, seminars or meetings.

Through 2014, the Library will play host to the exhibit Boys in Blue. Boys in Blue examines Illinois soldiers in the Civil War using the Library’s extensive collections of Civil War photographs, letters, books, newspapers, and artifacts. Each year a different topic is highlighted.
