2018 Holiday Schedule

The library will be closed December 1 for the Christmas Parade in Four Oaks. Come join us!


Santa will join us for Story Time with Santa on December 12 at 10:30am. Story Time with Santa is one of our favorite events! Santa will read a story to us! There will be time to hear Christmas wishes and a small gift from Santa. Please bring your own camera. This is a free event!


 We have set aside time starting at 11:30 for children that deal with over-stimulation disorders and need a smaller group or one on one during their visit with Santa. Time slots are limited for these visits and we will accommodate visitors as well as we can. Please call the library to sign up for one of these time slots to help us provide the best possible visit for your child. We would need to know what accommodations your child will need. This is the second year we are offering this program. We were approached by parents needing smaller groups for their children and we are trying to provide for the need. Please be patient with us as we refine it.  For more information on either of the Santa visits, please email the library at librarian@fouroakslibrary.org or call during regular hours at 919-963-6013. This is a free event!


The library will be open on Christmas Eve for limited hours. We will be open from 1-3pm. We will have coffee, cake and light finger foods for our guests. We will have video games on the "big screen" as well as our usual goodies. Please come join us! This is a free event!

Christmas at the Library

I'm going to share a not so well kept secret. Our library will be open on December 24 from 1-3pm. "Why?" you ask. Well, Katie, Lynn, and I have found quite a few people that don't have family to celebrate with and didn't have anywhere special to go for the Christmas Holiday. We decided to share some of our Christmas cookies and coffee or hot chocolate with the wonderful people in our town. If you aren't busy on December 24 this year, stop in the library and share a cup of coffee and a cookie or two! We'll be there from 1-3pm. Merry Christmas to all of you!

Please share this and invite everyone to join us! There will be plenty of cookies to share! We tend to bake way more holiday goodies than we can possibly eat!


EBOOKS are finally here! The James Bryan Creech Public Library will be celebrating the grand opening of our ebook library on Friday May 23! Come join the party and find out how to use the 3M Cloud Library on your device. There's an app for that! You will need to have a library card that is in good standing to download books. Come by on Friday at 2pm and join us to celebrate this milestone for our library system! You will find the PC App on each of our computers in our library if you need to use it to transfer books to your ereader. Call at 919-963-6013 or come by the library for more information. There is a link to our tutorials in the left column. I will be adding more graphics to make it easier.

The 3M Cloud Library automatically syncs to all your devices that have the 3M Cloud Library App downloaded to them. You can start reading on your iPad and continue later while waiting some where and reading from your phone - right where you've left off.

Our New Sign

We have a new sign in front of our library!!  Many thanks to Horizon Family Medicine and Lee's Signs for their generous donation. It looks GREAT!!




 A Special Note from Tonie

I just wanted to say thanks to all of our great patrons! We had so many of you visit us in the month of July that our library was almost always filled. We also have stacks of new books thanks to your generosity. I also want to say "Thanks" to all the volunteers that made it possible to keep things running. I could not have done it without you!

The Acorn Festival

I had a great time at the Acorn Festival! It was so much fun getting out and telling people about our library and the programs we offer!
