At the end of this month, Gerber/Hart Library and Archives will make its move to Clark Point Plaza at 6500 North Clark Street. Gerber/Hart is the Midwest’s largest LGBT library.

“In 1998 we moved to the Granville location knowing that we would eventually outgrow the space,” said Karen C. Sendziak, president of the library’s board of directors, in a press release. “Our needs have changed and the library board feels that the time has come to move.”

The new space will include 20 parking spaces, a sitting area, and a meeting room/exhibit gallery, among many other features. [GerberHart]
