Ever since we began the conversation about the new Library @ 520, we’ve talked about it being a place that belongs to the entire community. Creating such a space requires the helping hands of many people, but none are so hard working as Upper Dublin Public Works director Chris Kunkel and his crews!
One of their current projects at the new building is creating a new book drop lane which will enable you to drop off your books from your car directly into the library. This will not only provide you with a safe and convenient way of dropping off your books without having to come into the building, but it will eliminate the need for staff to have to go out in all weather to retrieve books from a free-standing drop bin. (And we all know that Mr. Jack won’t be upset about no longer needing to go out to collect books in the rain!)
But this is no small task! It takes a lot of specialized expertise, planning and heavy machinery. Pictured below are Assistant Public Works Director Ralph Alessandrini (left) and Foreman Frank DiSandro (right) coordinating grading and utility infrastructure for the project.
We are so incredibly grateful that their hard work now will create a easier way for you to drop off books at the new location! Thank you Chris, Ralph, Frank, and all of the Public Works staff for not just this project but everything they do for the Upper Dublin Community.
