Martha Tyson, president of The Friends of the Carrboro Branch Library, says the group has started a petition to save the library in McDougle Schools.
"It has been heartening to hear the outcry from the public and our locally elected officials against the possible closing of the Carrboro Branch Library," she writes."To save $37,000 to compensate for the poor planning of the new main library in Hillsborough can hardly be construed in any manner or form as being equitable.
"To close a library that is open only 26 hours a week to serve the heaviest populated area of the county makes absolutely no sense."
The group is asking supporters to sign their name and Orange County address on its Facebook petition. If you want to keep the library open you can 1) go to Google and search for "carrboro branch library petition." The first link that appears should go to the created petition
