Legal Aid of North Carolina holds free monthly or quarterly clinics on common legal issues all around the state. The clinics educate people about their legal rights and, in some cases, empower them to file certain legal actions without a lawyer. Participants can also ask general questions of volunteer attorneys. Clinics are free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. Call 1-866-219-5262 (toll-free) or visit legalaidnc.org/get-help to register.

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.
Have you ever wanted to make your own holiday decorations? Join us as we make our own nest of spiders and other Halloween decorations on Friday, October 12, at 4 p.m. All supplies will be provided.
