Renner Frankford Library 

Update 8/23/21:  

Roof repairs should be completed this week, depending on the weather.  

ITS has approved and issued the work order for cabling of the public computers. Install is pending confirmation of schedule by their vendor.

Electrical work for the public computers is set to happen in the next few weeks.

Interior repairs are ongoing, but the following are the major items left to finish in the next 4 weeks: install ceiling insulation and ceiling tiles (delivered to site); install carpet (delivered to site); the old hanging pendant lights need to be reinstalled or replaced.

Fire alarm install should be wrapped up shortly after ceiling tiles are installed, and then we must get inspected and green tagged by DFR.

Replacement furnishings are expected to arrive in early October.

Full completion of all the items listed above puts us at a mid-October opening, however, if we can get our fire system inspected and books shelved, we are willing to do a 'soft opening' without all the new furniture in place which could possibly happen by mid-September.

Beginning Saturday, 3/6/21:

 the Renner Frankford Branch library become a construction site so restoration can proceed to fix the storm damage. Please do not attempt to return materials to this location. You may return them to any other DPL location, with Timberglen on Midway and Fretz Park on Belt Line being your closest alternates.
