Block Club Chicago: Latinos Progresando Community Center

Shuttered Little Village Library Would Be Turned Into Community Center Under Nonprofit’s Plan

After raising $2 million, a Little Village nonprofit is on track with its plan to convert an abandoned library into an office and community space. 

Latinos Progresando, a nonprofit that provides legal aid for immigrants, has raised 80 percent of the funding for a planned adaptive reuse of the old Marshall Square Library building at 2724 W. Cermak Rd.

The community development group, which works on a range of issues including immigration, health, peace and education, wants to convert the former library into a new office, with space for their legal services and the community by next year.

Latinos Progresando is working with Canopy / Architecture + Design.
