We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

The Chicago Public Library is holding a contest to give away ten passes for the Pitchfork Music Festival, which runs from July 17-19 in Union Park (1501 W. Randolph). To enter the library’s contest, find any three bands playing at the festival in the CPL’s online catalog, then email their names with the other required info to the address provided on the contest Web site by Thu 7/9.

For the research inept, the Reader is also giving away a pair of three-day passes, no searching required.
