NC Cardinal Resource Sharing

If our local library system does not have an older book title you would like, you may request the book from our partner libraries across North Carolina. You may do that yourself when you are logged in to your account, or library staff are able to provide assistance. Newer book titles may also be requested, but there will be a six month wait as home libraries give first access to their local cardholders.


The North Carolina (NC) Cardinal consortium consists of multiple counties and their libraries joining forces to offer better support among their peers, offer more material for cardholders, and to create everlasting results that make each library valuable. NC Cardinal’s mission is to provide, maintain, and continually develop an efficient, sustainable catalog for public library users and library staff within North Carolina. The establishment of the NC Cardinal consortium promotes a single vision for providing library services and access to library materials for North Carolina library users.
