A storm is brewing in Chicago’s Washington Heights neighborhood and it’s all over a library that houses a priceless collection of literature. The building, which is in dire need of attention, is literally falling apart.
The community is crying foul, and demanding that action be taken.
“You wouldn’t know that is was a library, that it was this incredible resource. This cultural center — museum if you will,” said Melvin Thompson, executive director of the Endeleo Institute.
