Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to bring their Nash Community College (NCC) photo ID card to the library for a borrower’s account. Your NCC ID then becomes your library card for borrowing books and movies, renewing these items online, and requesting books from over 50 North Carolina community college libraries. Other library cards are available upon request. We also provide library cards for NCC alumni and citizens of Nash County with a government photo ID card.
Tim Valentine Collection
Tim Valentine Jr. (1926 - 2015) was born in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, and practiced law in Nash County. During World War II he served in the Army Air Force in the Pacific Theatre. He also served as a representative for the people of this region in the North Carolina General Assembly and the United States Congress. The Tim Valentine Collection contains scrapbooks, photo albums, photographs, documents, artifacts, and other materials. Many treasures of the collection are on display in the Tim Valentine Study Room. Other items are preserved in the library’s archives and are available for use by request.

The Nash Community College Archives contains catalogs, brochures, newsletters, reports, scrapbooks, and other material relating to the history of the college. Material may be used in the library for research, and several scrapbooks are available online at DigitalNC sponsored by the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center.
The card catalog in the campus library at Nash Community College has been re-purposed to store a variety of vegetable, fruit, herb, flower and ornamental seeds. Students, faculty and staff of the College, as well as members of the community are encouraged to participate in the seed lending program. Seeds are available to “check out.” Plant the seeds at home and watch them grow. Save some seeds from the plant produce and return a few to library to be “checked in” for others to enjoy! Come in and explore the seed library section of Nash Community College’s campus library today!
