Little Library for Little Ones 

Our friends at the Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center have unveiled a new Little Library.

Drop off a few books or bring your own child to discover their next new read.

  

What's Going on With Lindy Boggs?

The St. Margaret’s foundation’s plans to redevelop the former Lindy Boggs Medical Center into a nursing home have been dealt a setback by the coronavirus. While renovation was expected to finish up this year, the property by the Greenway on Norman Francis Parkway and Conti Street has remained vacant. Nevertheless, the foundation still hopes to push their vision forward when the opportunity arrives. Read more here.
