Library Services for Adults

Buncombe County Public Libraries collects new and classic fiction and non-fiction, large print fiction, music and movies for checkout at every branch. If the item you want is not at your branch but shows available at a different library location, you may request that it be transferred for you to pick up free of charge. We can also request materials from over 30 other libraries across the state to be sent to you at no charge.

You may also log onto the North Carolina Digital Library and download eBooks 24/7.
