Region-Wide Amnesty Week
We Geek Community Unity!
Monday, December 9-Saturday, December 14
Patrons who have overdue fines or fees for any public library in Alleghany, Stokes, Surry or Yadkin counties may have all fees and fines forgiven on this one week by simply bringing in canned or non-perishable food items or toiletries to the library. All items will go to a charitable organization chosen by the local library to help those less fortunate. Patrons without fines or fees may also contribute.
For the first time Northwestern Regional Library has digital local history items on www.digitalnc.org. 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!
