will offer full reference and adult services and will have a separate full
service children’s department.
The county also announced that a new downtown Raleigh branch will be
opened at the same time in the County Office Building on the Fayetteville
Street Mall, in the space occupied by Ron’s Restaurant and the former Bell
Telephone office. This branch will be a business and professional library. It
wil also offer popular reading materials. The opening of this branch is the
first step in fulfilling contractual obligations between the county and the city
to return the current building housing the Olivia Raney Library to the city of
Most of the reference and nonfiction collection, all of the children’s
collection and much of the adult fiction collection currently located in the
Olivia Raney Library will be relocated in the new Cameron Village Regional
Library. Located near downtown with abundant free parking and good public
transportation, this library will allow the public better access to the largest
collection of books and magazines in the system.
The relocated downtown branch will offer specialized services for the
business and professional community, and will have expanded reference
services in this area. It will continue to serve as a popular lending library for
the thousands of people who work downtown.
Both branches will open in the first quarter of 1985.
