CARY N.C. – While technology is always evolving, one thing has withstood the test of time- reading!

  • A new library opened in downtown Cary yesterday, November 3.
  • This is a $10.7 million facility.
  • Fuquay Varina’s mayor says library usage has been up 50% since their own town’s library grand opening in September.

Hundreds of people gathered in Downtown Park in Cary on Sunday, November 3 for the grand opening of a new library.

This $10.7 million facility is just one of several new libraries opening across the county.

Fuquay Varina opened up a $4.5 million library and Morrisville will cut the ribbon on a $4 million library next spring.

According to County Library Director, Mike Wasilick, millennials have not turned their backs on libraries just yet.

“They’re a generation looking to connect with other people and this is a chance to be with other people and be back with the community and they’re looking for that", says Wasilick.

According to Fuquay Varina’s mayor, their own town’s library usage has increased 50% since the grand opening in September.
