A Bit of History: South Side (1909)
More than any other library in the system, the South Side branch was responsible for helping the immigrant community acclimate to life in the U.S. About 60 percent of the neighborhood's population was foreign-born and in the first weeks of the library's operation, patrons requested books in Polish, German, Lithuanian, Serbian, Italian, French, Croatian, Hungarian, Swedish and Yiddish - in that order of popularity.
