North Central Regional Library is now NCW Libraries.
This name change is an important part of our ongoing efforts to best serve the communities of North Central Washington. We believe our new name more accurately reflects the geographic area we serve and conveys that we operate many libraries throughout that region.
We are proud to call North Central Washington home, and NCW Libraries embraces this unique place that we all have in common.
While our name and logo are changing, our services are not! You can still access our online services in the same way. Curbside Pickup has started in Okanogan, Ferry, and Grant counties and we are working hard to provide access to curbside pickup and in Chelan and Douglas Counties. And we look forward to serving you in our libraries just as soon as it is safe to do so.
You may be asking why are we rolling this out in the middle of a pandemic. And we think that’s a valid question. We adopted our 2019-2021 Strategic Plan early last year with the goal of shaping a library system that would evolve and grow alongside the communities we serve. We’ve already implemented many of the strategies in the plan, and now we are ready for our name change.
This change will take time. Please be patient with us, but also be assured that our top priority is serving you!
