The dedication ceremony for the new Richard M. Daley branch library (733 N. Kedzie, 312-743-0555) is Thursday, July 28, at 2 PM.

Per the Chicago Public Library: "The Richard M. Daley Branch is named in honor of Mayor Richard M. Daley, who during his 22 years as mayor provided unprecedented support to the growth of libraries in the City of Chicago. During Mayor Daley's term in office, the City of Chicago built or renovated 59 new libraries across the City of Chicago."

It seems Daley was as passionate about libraries as he was about trees.
