Troy (Michigan) Public Library Threatened With Closure, Part 2

Link to May 17 Detroit Free Press article, "No library in Troy? Don't count on books elsewhere".

Excerpt: The Troy Public Library is likely to be closed and Troy residents are poised to lose privileges at other area libraries, too.

Last week, the Troy City Council approved the 2010-11 budget, which calls for the library to close by July 1, 2011.

As a result, the Rochester Hills Public Library in Rochester and the Baldwin Public Library in Birmingham are implementing borrowing restrictions and other limits for nonresidents.

The Baldwin library serves residents of Birmingham, Beverly Hills and Bingham Farms. The Rochester Hills library serves that community, Rochester and Oakland Township.

Both libraries have had reciprocal agreements with Troy
