Library-State/Van Buren (CTA)

Library-State/Van Buren (commonly simply Library) is an 'L' station serving the CTA's Brown, Orange, Pink, and Purple Lines. It is so named because it allows direct access to the second floor of the Harold Washington Library building. It is a handicapped accessible station. Free transfers are available at the station for Blue and Red Lines. It was originally known as State/Van Buren when it first opened in 1897. However it closed in 1973 due to low ridership. It was reopened in 1997 in order to serve the city's central library.
