Scrapbooks and other historic materials from the Northwestern Regional Library system are now available on DigitalNC. The online resources include:
- World War II scrapbooks and a collection of church photos from the Alleghany Public Library
- A 1943 Junior Chamber of Commerce scrapbook from the Elkin Public Library
- Scrapbooks documenting World War II veterans and a local high school from the King Public Library
- Clipping files and a city directory from the Mount Airy Public Library
- Several scrapbooks from the Yadkin County Public Library
The photographs, clippings, and stories contained in the scrapbooks give us a fascinating glimpse into small-town life in northern North Carolina in the middle of the 20th century.
