Home / National News / Locations in Three States Submit Bids to House Future Obama Library


(CHICAGO) — Bids to host President Obama’s future library and museum have been submitted by developers in three states, including his birth state, Hawaii; his home state, Illinois; and New York.

Among the competitors are six bids from Illinois — five on college campuses and another near downtown Chicago. Gov. Pat Quinn, D-Ill., said on Monday that he believes the location for the library should be in the state Obama represented in Congress. “I want to make sure it’s in Illinois,” Quinn said. “I don’t think it should be in anywhere else but our state.”

The Obama Foundation is expected to select a location for the library in early 2015.
