The Renner Frankford Library in far North Dallas is throwing away more than 38,000 books after last month's winter storm caused significant damage to the building.
Dallas City Councilwoman Cara Mendelsohn tweeted pictures of the damage and explained that along with thousands of books, much of the library such as check-out desks, furniture, and all things with upholstery will need to be replaced.
The District 12 Councilwoman said the library holds many memories of the local community, and she hopes to find a viable solution soon.
