Brunswick County Library System
The library is now offering curbside pickup. Please use our online catalog or call us to put books and other items on hold. The library will contact you once they are available. Once you have arrived to pick up, call us and they will be brought outside with no direct contact necessary. Please place all returns in the book drop at your location.
All Brunswick County library branches remain closed to the public until further notice. Staff is available to answer questions via phone or email. See the BRANCH LOCATIONS page for contact information for your nearest branch. You may hold on to any items currently checked out until we reopen. No fines will be charged.
