U.S. President Barack Obama is only two years into his first term, but two universities- one of which is in Chicago- are already exploring options for his presidential library.

The University of Hawaii is looking at potential sites and talking about a possible academic center with the library. President Obama was born in Hawaii.

The University of Chicago, where the president taught, has also expressed interest in a presidential library. The Obamas' family home is located in Hyde Park near the South Side school.

When asked what the president thought about the locations, a White House spokesperson said, "No comment."
