Chicago PL Opens Its Door To Hip-Hop

Can I get an amen to this article about the First Annual Windy City Hip-Hop and R&B Music Industry Seminar, held at the auditorium in the Woodson Regional Library of the Chicago Public Library? A great quote from the article: "Public libraries open windows to the world in fields as diverse as Persian poetry and how to be a carpenter. So why not rap and hip-hop?" Yeah! Why not? Via the PLA Blog (whose new daily featured round-up of library news is a true must-read).
