Just learned about 1871

Definitely worth exploring especially if you are in the Chicago area or planning to be in the Chicago area! I wonder if the American Library Association (also based in Chicago) has any interaction with 1871.

According to is website, It is a “a community of designers, coders and entrepreneurs who learn from each other, encourage each other, and share a journey up the steep startup learning curve. Tenants and members of 1871 have priority access to hundreds of classes, lectures, seminars and other programs designed to educate and inspire. From classes specifically designed to empower entrepreneurs, to talks from leading business-builders, technologists and designers, to inspirational sessions from artists and others, 1871 offers a full range of content and programming. Three types of co-working memberships offer choices for entrepreneurs in different stages of building their businesses. Reserved co-working members have their own desks and storage; shared co-working members have round-the-clock access to the space; and night/weekend members have access in the evenings and on weekends.”
