Pulaski County Human Services is working on a plan to take over the operation of the former Medaryville library branch. On Wednesday, the Pulaski County Public Library Board approved a facilities use agreement with the nonprofit agency.
The idea is that they will reopen the building to let residents use its computers, giving them access to the Internet, as well as all the Pulaski County Public Library’s digital services.
Pulaski County Human Services Executive Director Jacki Frain says the takeover of the library is still in planning stages. So far, no date for the reopening has been announced, and the operating hours for the facility once it reopens also remain to be seen. The lack of convenient hours was cited as a reason for the library’s low usage by residents protesting its closure.
