    The Ridglea and Northside libraries will stay open after all.

    Two Fort Worth libraries have been saved from the budget ax.

    A spokesperson for the city said the Ridglea and Northside branches will now stay open thanks to increased spending in the city that resulted in higher sales tax revenues.

    A private foundation had offered to keep the libraries open, at least part-time. 

    Now the libraries will stay open on the city's dime with regular, full-time hours.
