We’re making some changes that will allow you to order materials from the N.C. Cardinal system more efficiently. During that time, the library catalog system will be unavailable. The transition will take place between Friday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 14. During this time, patrons must have their library cards to check out, and they must be in good standing before Oct. 12. Additionally, the online library catalog will be unavailable between these days.
This September, the Walkertown Library will be presenting an art exhibit featuring the work of Dot Duggins, a local Walkertown artist. Her new oil painting - the first and only oil that Dot has ever done, titled "The Moonlight Dance," - is featured in the show along with her acrylic and watercolor pieces. We invite you to come and experience these wonderful works of art and to support your local artist!
