The Dorothy W. Hightower Library will get a full makeover as renovations begin in the coming months. Books, supplies, computers and equipment are currently being moved to the library’s new location for the next year: the Instructional Complex building, rooms, 112, 116 and 117. The library is expected to move full-time to the Instructional Complex building in mid-June and reopen sometime around March 2016.
“We currently have two floors and seating for approximately 325 to 350 students, and the campus has outgrown this space. With the renovation, we will almost double that number with a little over 525 seats and areas for students to study,” said library director Dr. Sonya Gaither. [Full Story »]

If you think it is time for your young athlete to move up from recreational soccer play, you may consider having him or her to participate in Fury FC soccer evaluations and tryouts this week.
Training is more intense than recreation soccer and the expectations for parents and players are greater as well. Fury teams at all levels are coached by licensed, experienced coaches. They will also work with paid trainers with vast soccer playing time and skills.
Tryouts for boys and girls at the U9-U12 level are June 1 and 2 from 6-7 p.m. at Pike Soccer Complex located on County Farm Road in Zebulon. Tryouts for those in the U13-U19 level are June 2 and 3 at 6 p.m. also at the soccer complex.
As a testament to the training, every girl on last fall's U15 Athena team that moved on to high school started as a freshman for her high school team.
Participants should bring a ball, cleats, shinguards and water to tryouts. For more info., visit pikesoccer.org.
