A former Chicago Public Library branch, 2121 W. 95th St., has been vacant for more than six years, and Chicago’s harsh weather has taken a toll on its structure, according to 19th Ward Ald. Matt O’Shea. However, O’Shea said the Barraco Family, owner of several local restaurants, has proposed to buy the site and open a banquet hall.

A meeting will take place on Dec. 8, at 7 p.m., at Ridge Park, 9625 S. Longwood Dr., to further discuss plans for the site, O’Shea said. (Review photo)
