Wake County Considering Expansion

By LJ Staff

The Wake County Library, NC, is considering a $53 million plan to build eight
new public libraries and replace four old ones by 2010. According to a
presentation by library director Tom Moore to county commissioners, more
libraries need to be built to keep pace with the county’s population, which
