As recognition of same-sex marriage grows the Chicago Public Library presents Love Me Forever! Oh! Oh! Oh! by cartoonist Jeremy Sorese. In this engagingly illustrated exhibit, Sorese, a gay man, explores the idea of getting married. Selected from The Best American Comics 2013, Love Me Forever! Oh! Oh! Oh! is on display through March 8, 2015, in the Congress Corridor, Ground Level, at the Harold Washington Library Center, 400 S. State St.

Twenty states now recognize same-sex marriage and the United States Supreme Court recently decided to let stand rulings that allow same-sex marriage in several additional states, dramatically expanding the movement for legalizing marriage equality unions across the nation. Faced with a decision he had not previously believed possible, Sorese uses his parents' heterosexual marriage as a model to contemplate the benefits and downfalls of marriage.

Since 1873, the Chicago Public Library ( CPL ) has encouraged lifelong learning by welcoming all people and offering equal access to information, entertainment and knowledge through innovative services and programs, as well as cutting-edge technology. Through its 80 locations, the Library provides free access to a rich collection of materials, both physical and digital, and presents the highest quality author discussions, exhibits and programs for children, teens and adults. CPL recently received the Social Innovator Award from Chicago Innovation Awards; won a National Medal for Library Services from the Institute for Museum and Library Services and was ranked number one in the U.S. and third in the world by an international study of major urban libraries conducted by the Heinrich Heine University Dusseldorf in Germany.
