Get lost in books

With all the hustle and bustle the city has to offer, it’s rare that you’ll ever get a moment of silence. However, there’s a little gem on the South Side that can ease your mind from everyday life.

The Stony Island Arts Bank, a hybrid gallery, media archive, and library, is a must see. What was once a community savings and loan building, built in 1923, is now a place for neighborhood residents to engage with South Side history.

You will be in awe stepping into the building full of beautiful architecture and a large room dedicated to books!
