Southside Library remains closed

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

   It doesn't appear the Southside Library in Albany will open anytime soon.   The Dougherty County Commission Finance committee is recommending not to fund re-opening the library at this time.  

County commissioners looked to re-open the library last year after they could not find anyone to rent or buy the building.   

County Commissioner John Hayes says it is best to wait to re-open the library when it is financially feasible.          

"With so much on their plate now staff felt that putting this out delaying it until a future date the next fiscal period would be better than adding something additional to the burden this year."  

Hayes says the library is the only resource many kids have to enable them to continue their education beyond the classroom.
