This Easter Sunday is also Mayor Richard Daley's 69th birthday, and his wife Maggie is spending it in the hospital recovering from leg surgery.

On Saturday, guests sang "Happy Birthday" to the mayor as he visited the new Greater Grand Crossing Branch Library. This will be Daley's last birthday while in office as mayor of Chicago.

Daley is planning one last open house at city hall to thank residents as he leaves office after 22 years. The open house is set for the afternoon of May 9.
