Voters to decide on $142 million bond that includes a public library in Rolesville

A new public library may be in the future for the town of Rolesville. Yesterday, the Wake County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution calling for a $142 million bond referendum on Nov. 5 to build, expand and renovate local libraries. This plan includes allocating $13.3 million to build a public library in Rolesville. Right now, the town is the only municipality in Wake County that doesn’t have a public library. 

Wake County currently anticipates a $2.50 tax increase (per $100,000 of assessed valuation) per year would be necessary in the fiscal year 2026 if the bond is approved by voters. To learn more about the bond referendum, visit
