What You’ll Find Underground At This Illinois University Will Blow Your Mind

A lot of us reminisce about the good old days in college, but few of us romanticize those late nights cramming in the library. Well, maybe if you went to college where this amazing library is, you would feel differently. I’m talking about the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library at the University of Chicago. Now right away, you can tell this library is special, but it’s actually what’s on the inside that is super neat.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

There’s actually a really cool video about how the library works. And it’s legitimately cool, guys. No pocket protectors needed to view it.

Seriously, guys, I am ready to hit the books. Huge plug for the Facebook page Arkht, bringing you images of some of the very coolest pieces of art and architecture from around the world.
