Starting Wednesday, January 13, 2021, all Appalachian Regional Library facilities will be closed to the public. We will provide curbside and virtual services only. The library system has chosen this course of action due to the recent spike in COVID19 cases in North Carolina. Contact-free curbside pickup services will start on Wednesday, January 13 @ 10 am. You can place holds and we will do our best to get other materials that you want. Our website and Facebook page have fantastic programs for you to enjoy. For more information, visit our website at wilkeslibrary.org with live chat service during our curbside hours, email wilkesreference@arlibrary.org, or call us at 336-838-2818.

Accessing online & digital resources tips: Use your library card number and pin, which is the last 4 numbers of your phone number. Or, if you are a student in Wilkes County public schools, you can log in with your student ID (lunch) number. Your pin is the last 4 numbers of your student ID. Need to download an app? The Libby App is the easiest to access. When NC Live asks your institution, it is Appalachian Regional Library.
