Design For Obama’s Presidential Library Revealed

Earlier this week, former president and first lady, Barack and Michelle Obama revealed the plans for The Obama Presidential Center that will be located in the South Side of Chicago. Not only will there be a library to commemorate the Obamas, but it will also feature classrooms, an auditorium, a restaurant, and a public garden!

The whole center will look and serve more as a campus according to Obama at the unveiling event. “The thing that is most exciting to us is to create an institution that will train the next generation of leadership.”

 

 

The Obamas wanted to build the center on the South Side as a way to give back to the neighborhood and provide more job opportunities to the community. Construction is estimated to take about four years, but they plan on starting their educational and social programs as soon as possible. 

 

You can read more about the project via the Obama Foundation’s website. We can’t wait to see the finished result, just another gorgeous library to add to the list!
