The Durham County Library was the first free, tax-supported library in North Carolina.  After more than a century of service, Durham County Library is now a regional system.  With the opening of the renovated Southwest and South Regional Libraries in 2010, Durham County now has a full-service library within five miles of nearly every Durham citizen.  The library offers more than 200 public access computers and free WiFi in all library locations.  In addition to traditional library books and magazines, the library offers CDs, DVDs, audiobooks, downloadable ebooks, and online databases  for research.  With more than 2 million visitors annually to a library location, an additional 2 million visitors to the library website, as well as 5,000-plus programs for children, teens, and adults, the Durham County Library system remains vitally relevant to the Durham Community at all stages of life.
