Our Mission
The mission of the Erwin Public Library is to provide patrons with the means to meet their recreational reading interest; to find, evaluate and use information in a variety of formats. To have questions answered; and to help excel in the education of both children and adults and to continue as an essential community resource.

Join the Library

Getting your child a library card and using the library is an important step in the future success of your child. Together, you may enjoy a lifetime love of reading. To obtain a library care, adults must provide a drivers license or social security number. Children may receive a card only if a parent or guardian has a card in their possession. Library cards can be used at any of the Harnett County Libraries.

Library Policies

The Erwin Public Library hours are 9:00 – 5:00 Monday – Friday

Return dates on library materials vary, depending on the item you have checked out. Books and audio books are checked out for three weeks with an option to renew one time. Fines on three week items will be ten cents per item each day they are overdue. You are allowed a grace period of eight days. Overdue notices are mailed as a courtesy. If items are not returned, you will be billed and receive a letter from the County Attorney. Magazines are checked out for one week. The same return policy does apply.

Videocassettes and DVDs circulate for three days and may not be renewed. The charge for late videos and DVDs is fifty cents per day, per item.

You may return an item to any Harnett County Library; it will be returned to us through the courier service. If you wish to renew materials, excluding videos and DVDs call 897-5780 during regular business hours.

We offer services to the Community such as copies and fax services, Inter-library loan, and voter registration forms which are mailed directly to the Board of Elections. The Erwin Library offers tax help from highly qualified CPAs during tax season. You must make an appointment as they only work at our library one day a week.

The Erwin Public Library provides internet access to the public. We are limited on our use of chat rooms, facebook and adult sites because of children. Our patron’s are not permitted to access any internet site that may be offensive or obscene to anyone. The computers offer a variety of educational games for the children. There is a time limit of twenty minutes per use if an individual is waiting for his or her turn. At the present time we have six computers for the public. Black/white printing is available with a charge of ten cents per page. All pages printed must be paid for. Users are not allowed in anyway to harass other users, damage computers or chairs and will be responsible for any malicious damage to hardware or software. Violating copyright laws or software license restrictions is prohibited.

Memorials and Donations

Many memorials are given to the library. Patrons on average spend $20 for a memorial. You may purchase a book or our staff will do this for you. A memorial card is sent to the family with the deceased, the giver and the title of the book.
