About North Asheville Library

Literary enrichment on the shores of Beaver Lake

The North Asheville Library is the newest building in the county library system. Originally opened in 1958, this new branch opened its doors in 2005 and is located right next to beautiful Beaver Lake.

The library features not only a large collection of books, DVDs, audiobooks, and music to check out, but also everything from internet access, Wi-Fi, a reading lounge, and an outside reading porch. We also feature a great children's section featuring a computer with education software for preteens.

Like all the county libraries, if you can't find what you're looking for, we can special order any time from any of the libraries across Buncombe County to our branch location for your convenience.
