Steps to purchase a new microfilm reader/printer for the T. Elmer Cox Genealogical and Historical Library in Greenville, Tennessee may have to be delayed due to tightening budgets, officials say.
Don Miller, the reference librarian for the Cox Library, told members of the Greene County Records Commission during a brief meeting Thursday morning that the purchase of a new microfilm reader/printer may have to be put on hold temporarily because funding from the Greeneville government and the library may not be available at this time.
The Greene County Commission has already approved $3,500 in funding for one-half of the cost for a microfilm reader/printer. The remaining portion of the cost of the $7,000 piece of equipment was expected to come, if approved, from Greeneville ($2,500) and the library ($1,000.)
