Snoopy is Honorary Chair for Library Card Sign-up Month, September 2015!

September is Library Card Sign-up Month.  Be sure to see what exciting events are going on at your local NWRL branch.

All NWRL branches will be closed on Monday, September 7th for the Labor Day holiday.  All branches will reopen at their regular times on Tuesday, September 8th.

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.
