NEW HANOVER COUNTY — In its 2022-2023 budget, New Hanover County allotted $1.3 million for the design of a fifth library added to its system.

The library is slated for the North Chase area, with an estimated $8.4 million added to its 2023-2024 budget, bringing the project total to just over $9.4 million.

A survey was launched a few weeks ago for residents to engage in feedback about what they’d like to see in the new addition. This month the county is offering two sessions, March 16 and 23, so citizens can learn more about the library and provide input on the branch.

An in-person session will be held at the Northeast branch at 1241 Military Cutoff Road on March 16 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.; registration is open here.

A virtual session will be held a week later on March 23 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m; registration is open here.

The 10-question survey can be accessed here.
