Power outage in Frankford

The lights went out in the Frank­ford branch of the Free Lib­rary of Phil­adelphia about 6:15 p.m. Monday as pat­rons were check­ing out books and Phil­lyR­ising was con­duct­ing a ses­sion in the lib­rary’s base­ment meet­ing room.

It wasn’t just the lib­rary that went dark. More than 800 cus­tom­ers in and around the 4600 block of Frank­ford Av­en­ue lost power when a fault in an un­der­ground line dis­rup­ted the flow of elec­tri­city, said PECO spokes­man Greg Smore. The util­ity rerouted power around the prob­lem and power was re­stored at shortly after 7 p.m. Monday. ••
