The Northwestern Regional Library system includes thirteen member libraries in Alleghany, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin counties
of North Carolina.

The area spans over 1,500 square miles in the beautiful foothills
and mountains of northwestern North Carolina.

The library staff looks forward to serving you through our print resources and latest technology. Please contact any branch library for your informational and educational needs.

All NWRL branches will be closed Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Branches that are open on Saturdays will open at their regular times.

Due to a leaking roof and mold inside the building, the Jonesville Public Library closed the 150 West Main Street location on Wednesday, November 11th.  The library is in the process of relocating to 560 Winston Road (Highway 67), Jonesville.  In mid-December the library will re-open.  More detail will be available in the next few weeks.

Thanks to a grant from the Alleghany County schools, Northwestern Regional Library now has ebooks for the titles on this year's Battle of the Books lists.  Click on overdrive to check out the titles.

Have you visited the redesigned website, created by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association (ALA)?  A key feature of the new website is a more engaging user experience with enhanced search and navigation that leads to dozens of library-led adult and children’s program models to help you get started or expand programming that reaches your target audiences.  These sustainable models help children and adults  learn about money, how  to save for college and develop a budget, and plan for retirement.  Program resources are arranged by audience and topic showcasing ideas and a creative mix of multi-media tools to help libraries reach out to community partners. 

For the first time Northwestern Regional Library has digital local history items on  The Digital Heritage Center supports community engagement and lifelong learning by promoting and increasing access of the historical collections and North Carolina’s cultural heritage through digitization.  The Center is supported by the State Library of North Carolina, with funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library and Services and Technology Act, and by the UNC-Chapel Hill University Library.
