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.
