While the rest of Palm Beach County is experiencing cuts and layoffs, the Palm Beach County Library System continues its growth. With a new branch opening this month and two more set to open next year, the trend of double-digit growth in circulation is expected to continue. Based on this growth, the County Libraries were <a href="http://www.pbcgov.com/countycommissioners/bccbriefs.htm">just allocated $5 million</a> to implement a system-wide RFID plan. The plan includes RFID tagging of library materials, conveyor belt sorting equipment, self-check equipment upgraded for RFID, and RFID security gates with people counters.
