If Carolyn Poole, the county's new director of libraries, was looking for a challenge, she found it. Undaunted however, Poole said her aim is to move the county forward.
"This is a hard economic time. My budget was cut 30 percent and there is no money in the county's budget to buy new books," said the former Hillsborough County librarian.
On the bright side, Poole is anticipating the delivery of a new $200,000 bookmobile that will be equipped with a pull-out canopy for displays, computers and wireless access.
