The City of Dallas adopted a new, $2.8 billion budget Wednesday.

Part of that includes replacing 600 obsolete computers at the city's central library as well as the 27 branches.

The budget also restores $1 million for new materials, but friends of the library system say Dallas still lags far behind other major cities in library spending per citizen.
