Financial crisis hits Durham County bond market efforts
Library forum reveals incremental renovation plans for Durham's downtown library

Downtown library renovation meeting tonight

The architectural and design team planning the renovations to the Durham County Library's main downtown branch will hold a second public meeting tonight, from 5:00-6:30pm at the Roxboro St. facility.

Tonight's session -- which comes on the heels of an update/envisioning forum and a series of focus groups in late July -- will give the design team and library officials a chance to give a progress report and to share their line of thinking to date.

In our interview with library director Skip Auld on "Shooting the Bull" last week, Auld reiterated that the existing downtown site still holds a "98% chance" of continuing to be the home of a renovated library facility (versus moving inside the downtown loop). Auld noted that the estimated $10 million in funding for the library renovations was expected to be included in a 2009 county bond referendum.

We'll have more on the library renovations here tomorrow.
