The Library Development section of the State Library is made up of nine professional librarians with individual areas of expertise, help build and maintain services to libraries across the state.
Each consultant serves as a liaison to all types of libraries in specific counties, providing assistance with Federal and other grant programs.
Through continuing education events, publications, special programs such as the Smartest Card Library Card campaign, surveys, and other activities, the State Library reaches citizens and visitors in all 100 counties.
Popular programs include the Job Search Toolkit that helps librarians train to help patrons with job searches; the N.C. Center for the Book, which focuses public interest on books, reading, libraries and the literary heritage of the state; and Youth Services, which helps North Carolina’s youngsters better appreciate the world that is available at their library.
