Our Alexander County Library has an abundance of educational and recreational materials available for your use.

If you live, work or own property in Alexander County, you are eligible for a free library card which gives you access to all of this:

  • A wide variety of newspapers and magazines
  • Videos, Audios, CD's and DVD's
  • More than 50,000 book titles
  • Computers with internet access
  • Research materials
As of April 2, 2001, The Alexander County Library completed a major updating with the automated library system which replaced the old card catalog system. With the new system, library users are able to search all of the library's 60,000 holdings with a few keystrokes. Internet users will be able to reserve books online, check on book due dates, etc. by accessing the library's link on the Alexander County government website.
The Alexander County Library's Local History Room contains an abundance of material to assist local historians and genealogists as well as individuals who are interested in our local history.

In the Local History Room you'll find:
  • Books pertaining to Alexander County, other NC counties and some other states.
  • Microfilmed US Census and court records for Alexander County and surrounding counties.
  • Microfilmed backfile of The Taylorsville Times.
  • Miscellaneous files on various local historical/genealogical topics.
  • Various periodicals of interest to genealogists.
  • Two computers for Internet access.
  • Microfilm reader-printer, plus one manual microfilm reader.

The Library has many wonderful offerings for children of all ages including the Children's Library Club which meets in the Children's Room the second Thursday of each month. The program is sponsored by the Family, Infant and Preschool Program of Alexander County. There are activities available for the whole family and snacks will be provided. Children of all ages are welcome.

In addition the Library has many children's videos for learning ABC's and numbers, singing, music, nursery rhymes and animated films; plus song and story cassette tapes and books of every kind! And the Library's Bookmobile makes stops at several local day care locations. Phone the Library for more details: 828-632-4058.

You are invited to join "Friends of the Library", whose membership dues help fund the addition of useful materials for the library as needed.
