New Books


Many of the titles are resources from Western North Carolina,  a region that was poorly represented in our collection.

We were just donated enough books to fill my budget for 15 years.  Well maybe I’m exaggerating a little…14 years.  Debra Turner Tamberelli donated the books in memory of her mother, Grace Williamson Turner.  Mrs.Turner won the North Carolina Society of Historians, Historian of the Year award in 1990 and was a tireless researcher.  She also had a kingly collection of genealogical and and history monographs.  I put as many books into my Camry as could fit and now they are here at the Wilson County Public Library.  We are quite honored to be receiving these books and they will be put to good use by many researchers.


I told you that there were a lot of books.
