Jonesville Public Library

150 West Main Street
Jonesville, NC 28642



In the spring of 1961, a group from the Jonesville-Arlington Woman's Club began the process of establishing a library in Jonesville. Miss Phyllis Snyder from the North Carolina State Library recommended that the two towns combine in order to meet population figures for a federal grant. A grant of $3,875 was awarded.

This grant was used to purchase books and to pay a librarian's salary for one year. The Jonesville-Arlington Public library opened May 21, 1962 in the Jonesville Town Hall building. In July 1962, Yadkin County became part of the Northwestern Regional Library system.

On October 31, 1983, the library moved its present location in the building adjacent to town hall.

In June 1997, the new automated circulation system was up and running followed by the first public internet access in the regional system in September 1997.

In March 1999, the library finally received the rest of the space in the library building to use for a history room and additional storage areas.

In April 2001, the Jonesville-Arlington Public Library, as a member of the Northwestern Regional Library installed the SIRSI Unicorn online automated system to continue improving services to the public.
