Loeb Classical Library.

We’re so pleased to announce the Mount Prospect Public Library now subscribes to the Loeb Classical Library, a beacon of knowledge, bringing the wisdom of ancient Greece and Rome into the modern era. This venerable collection, now available in a digital format, offers a treasure trove of Greek and Latin literature, paired with English translations, making it an indispensable resource for scholars, students, and enthusiasts alike.

The digital Loeb Classical Library is more than just a repository of texts; it’s a dynamic platform where the past converses with the present. With over a century of history, the library was founded with the noble intention of making the classical world accessible to all who cherish the finer things in life. Today, it fulfills this mission through its virtual shelves, where one can browse, search, and immerse oneself in the works of great poets, historians, philosophers, and orators.

The recent updates to the library include fascinating additions like Cicero’s Fragmentary Speeches and Justin’s Epitome of Pompeius Trogus, enriching the collection with their historical and philosophical insights. The digital interface is elegantly designed, allowing users to bookmark, annotate, and share content with ease, thus fostering a community of learning and appreciation
