The Harford County Public Library Board of Directors have delayed a vote on the closure of the Fallston Branch until next week.
The decision came just a few hours after County Executive David Craig announced dozens of Harford County employees would be losing their jobs to meet the mandated budget cuts.
The next hearing is tentatively scheduled for next Thursday, June 25 at 6 p.m. at a location not yet determined. After a huge crowd turned out for the first hearing, and only a handful of people got a chance to speak, it is expected the next hearing will be held in a larger venue and afford more opportunity for public input.
