Wake County libraries hope to turn the page on recession

“Since 2009, the Wake County Public Library system has put the construction of new facilities on hold, trimmed operating hours and slashed its book-buying budget. While the county was able to avoid closing any of its 20 branches during the economic downturn, three years of austerity have taken a toll: the number of books in the libraries’ collection is down more than a quarter of a million volumes from 2009.”
