The Walkertown Branch Library is hosting a display of Jerry Hunter's collection of North Carolina lighthouse models. All seven of the existing working ones on the NC shore are presented. Feel like you are at the beach and be amazed by huge prehistoric megalodon teeth from Douglas Leiser's ocean fossils collection. Make sure to take our Summer quiz: name all the active NC lighthouses and be entered for a prize!
Award yourself doing graceful and relaxing Tai Chi movements on the library lawn. Tai Chi is a low-impact exercise that has many benefits, including decreased stress and improved balance.

Going on a trip? Take a book from the library that you don't have to bring back! There’s a book sale every day at the Walkertown Branch Library. We had a lot of pre-covid donations from our generous patrons, and the Friends organized it into our wonderful book sale. It’s much cheaper than even a used bookstore, and you'll help the library.
