The Wake County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to change the name of the Cameron Village Regional Library to “Village Regional Library.”

The Cameron Village shopping center, where the library is located, was built on land that once held enslaved people and was named for the Cameron family. In January, Regency Centers, owners of the property, announced that it would change the name to “Village District.”

 

“Wake County embraces and celebrates diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Wake County Commissioner Shinica Thomas. “We want all residents to feel comfortable and respected when they visit any of our buildings.”

 

In the coming weeks, we will update our website, printed materials and library signage. Library staff will develop an interpretive display inside the facility to educate visitors on why the change was made.

Village Regional Library is open for Express Service 7 days a week. 

Mon.-Thurs. 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Fri.-Sat. 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Sun. 1 - 5 p.m.
