Welcome to the Perry Memorial Library where learning never stops!

The Perry Memorial Library provides adults with many sources of information and knowledge to keep them active and successful in their pursuit of learning and ideas. From regular and large print books to downloadable media, magazines to public Internet access, library programs to study rooms and collaborative workspaces to a quiet reading room - there are library materials and services to enrich the lives of ALL of patrons.

North Carolina Humanities Council

The North Carolina Humanities Council supports our local library by assisting with funding programs that we all enjoy. Without these crucial dollars from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the North Carolina Humanities Council would not be able to offer many of its programs that transform lives through public humanities. Please reach out to our local, state, and federal elected officials to ask them to support the National Endowment for the Humanities.
