Thank you for supporting your library!

     Did you know? Carteret County's library system is funded by our County Commissioners, but there aren't enough dollars in the budget to fund all the inspiring programs that our county's residents need and deserve. That's why we need Friends of the Library! Friends of the Carteret County Public Library support the library with tax-deductible contributions for items not covered by the budget, such as the summer reading programs and special programs and events.
