Library service for the King area began in 1943-44 when the Woman's Club stocked the club building with books from the North Carolina Library Commission and operated a library one afternoon a week. When this service was discontinued, the community relied on the bookmobile service in the FCX building.
On April 2, 1967 the first Lula Pulliam Memorial Library on Dalton Road opened. The library project was sponsored by local clubs, with 2,000 books from the Northwestern Regional Library, local donations, and a few new purchases. In August of 1969, Edith Smith was hired as the first librarian. Library officials voted to the name the library the Lula Pulliam Memorial Library in August, 1970.
On April 20, 1989, the library opened in what was formerly the Northwestern Bank building.
In 1994, Stokes County and the City of King committed to jointly fund a new library. A Library Services and Construction grant was awarded. A beautiful new library opened on March 18, 1996 dedicated in honor of Mrs. Marguerite Slate Gentry and in loving memory of Mr. J. Worth Gentry. Ann Nichols currently resides as librarian.
