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.


Beginning Tuesday, April 7th all Northwestern Regional Library branches will begin resource sharing with other NC Cardinal libraries. This will allow our patrons to access over 5 million library items. Please only place holds on NWRL items until then and return items to your NWRL local branch.
