Funding uncertain for planned library

The county has extended its lease on four storefronts in the Long Point Mall in the hope that money can be found in the next budget to pay for a new library.

The $1.1 million library, which was scheduled to open in June, was put on hold with several other capital projects until the county has assessed its financial situation in light of the property tax cap and cuts in state aid.

"We're going to look very closely to see if we can afford to go ahead with this," said Louise Hayman, a spokeswoman for County Executive Robert R. Neall. "Once we build it, we want to be able to staff it and equip it properly."

Last month, county officials said they had only purchased a quarter of the branch's planned 40,000-book collection and may not have enough money to buy the rest.
