…and you want the State Library but you need a library card first to use it.
With a library card you can check out books and use their electronic databases and digital collections. Here’s a link to the State Library’s databases by type: http://statelibrary.ncdcr.gov/ghl/resources/bytype.html
Here’s how to get a card:
Fill out the library card application that’s at the bottom of this webpage: http://statelibrary.ncdcr.gov/ghl/resources/index.html
Then take the application to the State Library and bring your state employee ID. Register for a card at the Reference Desk. It is a quick and simple process that takes 5 minutes.
The State Library is right next to the Legislative Building at 109 East Jones Street. Library Hours are 8:30 -5:00, Monday through Friday.
Let us know if you have any questions about the process.
