When the Local History and Genealogy Center closes this summer, Muncie Public Library hopes to rent the downtown building, the newest of all the Muncie library facilities. The center, at 210 S. Jefferson St., just behind the Carnegie Library, was built in 2003 at a cost of about $900,000 and includes about 7,000 square feet. But it will close this summer, as budget cuts have forced the library board to close both the center and Conley Library.
A third Muncie library, Carnegie, could close in 2010. As long as Carnegie remains open, it will house the history and genealogy materials moved from next door.
