Thank you for your interest in supporting New Hanover County Public Library!

With your help we can realize our vision for the future by helping us make the library an exciting destination where people gather, ideas flourish and the information and technology resources needed for our community to prosper are made freely available.

You can support the New Hanover County Public Library’s efforts to reach these goals by donating your time, talents and money.
