Library Services  

Buncombe County Public Libraries - Serving You Our public libraries have served the public in this community for more than 125 years, providing entertainment and education to thousands in Buncombe County each day.

Services include such standards as answering reference questions, both in person and over the phone, providing books, cassettes, DVDs and videotapes, as well as being a center for free public programs to enlighten and delight, for both children and adults.

Some more specialized services include providing "Interlibrary Loan," a way for the public to access library materials from all over the world, as well as our North Carolina Collection, containing many rare and interesting materials by or about our native son, Thomas Wolfe, and a huge collection of area photographs, historical postcards, books by local authors and genealogical materials.
