Several Chicago institutions have said they're interested including the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Quinn says the sites that want the library should work together. He says having the library in Chicago would bring in jobs and boost tourism.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hasn't picked his ideal site but says he'd like to see the library on Chicago's South Side, where he says it would have the most potential to spur development and jobs.
