Officials open book on library idea

December 21, 2011

County and college officials are going to take a long, hard look at combining library services under one roof.

County Judge Mark Barr, county commissioners and County Librarian Hollis McCright joined trustees for the discussion, which College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks described as exploratory only.
