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.
NWRL is proud to launch the year long Geek the Library campaign. This community-based campaign will raise the awareness of the importance of library funding. Stop by your local NWRL branch and see what we're geeking!
