    As city waits on soda tax ruling, private sector pours on support for Rebuild
    Given all the news stories that have described Rebuild as a "$500 million initiative," you might have assumed that, at least by now, the project's funding was set in stone. While that's largely true, there still are a few unknown variables for financing for Rebuild, Mayor Jim Kenney's massive attempt to rewrite the future of the city's rec centers, libraries, playgrounds, and parks.

Did you hear the great news? Knight Foundation awarded Fairmount Park Conservancy $3.28 million for bolstering residents' engagement in the city’s changing public spaces. The grant will fund work for two to three years, which will aim to build up the capacity of friends groups (for libraries and parks) and recreation center advisory councils.

    Renovated Free Library branches aim to get more people in the door
    The gleaming, white Lillian Marrero Library on Lehigh Avenue is easily the most magnificent building in the Fairhill neighborhood. And that's long been a problem for the Free Library. The building was a gift from Andrew Carnegie, the early 20th century philanthropist, who believed that community libraries could help lift people out of poverty.

    Not everyone can make it home for Thanksgiving. The family gathering might be too far away. You might be tied up with work. Or maybe you're just ignoring everyone this year. Whatever the reason, you don't have to eat alone. Several local bars are open on Turkey Day, so head out early and grab a seat.
