Mack to reopen shut Trenton library. (The Times of Trenton, 4/30/2012)
Excerpt: The opening ceremony for the new Mayor’s Learning Center Library is set for 3 p.m. on the 900 block of South Broad Street. The center will operate from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays as a space for computer access, study and other activities, according to a statement released by the mayor’s office.
The Skelton library building was one of four branches closed in August 2010. Budget cuts that went into effect on Nov. 1 of that year included deep cuts to the Trenton Free Public Library, which relies on funds from the city for its operation. The main branch of the Trenton Free Public Library on Academy Street has been the only location to remain open.
