The NCC Library provides collections, resources, and services to support academic success, professional development, and life-long learning. For assistance, you may contact library staff via email at email@example.com or phone at (252) 451-8248, after hours use the online chat service.
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.
DVD Film Collection
An expanding collection of DVDs supplements classroom learning as well as recreational use. The emphasis is on supporting curricular requests, books with movie tie-ins, and award-nominated films.
Early Childhood Education
The Early Childhood Collection is geared to the Early Childhood students and contains children’s books as well as early childhood theory books. These books may be checked out for family members or to re-read your favorite childhood story.
Magazines, Newspapers & Professional Journals
A dynamic collection supports both the curricular and recreational needs of NCC students, staff, and faculty. Full-text journals are also accessible online through NCLIVE.
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!

The Teaching and Learning Collection promotes scholarship, professional development, and in-depth faculty research and pedagogy. Likewise, students will find material to support student success in transitioning to college and transition from college to the workforce.
Young Adult Collection
Ranging from series like The Hunger Games and Harry Potter to award winners like John Green’s A Fault in Our Stars, young adult novels are written about or targeted to young adults (ages 12-18). Young Adult books appeal to adult readers as well for their plot, character, and writing quality.
