The Northwestern Regional Library is pleased to announce an exciting fundraiser for e-books. Two local artisans donated a colorful batik sampler queen-size quilt to help raise funds for the thirteen member libraries of the Northwestern Regional Library. The quilt was donated by Carol McDowell who pieced the quilt and is a member of the Elkin Library Board of Trustees. Amy Askins of Mount Airy quilted the work of art. The quilt was awarded in the Blue Ridge Quilt Festival in Blacksburg, Virginia. Tickets are available for a donation of $1.00 per ticket or six for $5.00 at any NWRL library in Alleghany, Stokes, Surry or Yadkin counties. The quilt will be displayed at NWRL branches until June 1. Please check our website under the Regional Headquarters “What’s Happening” page for the full location schedule. The raffle will be held Saturday, June 1 at Lone Hickory Arena in Yadkinville in conjunction with the second annual Ride for Readers. Other events for riders and guests include food, music, bike and car show, equestrian flag demonstration, wine tasting, and other events.
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.
