Cumberland County Public Library - East Regional Branch
4809 Clinton Road
The East Regional Branch Library is a full service branch to over 23,000 people who live in eastern Cumberland County. The 21,000 square foot branch, opened February 13, 1999 and is located opposite Cape Fear High School on Clinton Road.

After successfully serving the residents of Cumberland County for more than 40 years the Stedman and East Fayetteville Branches closed their doors on Thursday, December 31, 1998 and reopened as the East Regional Branch.
