Welcome Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Wilson County Public Library is a public charity organization which promotes the use of the library.  Members raise money for a variety of library-related programs and needs which are not met through traditional county government funding.  For example, the Friends installed an excellent sound system in the large assembly room at the main library.  This room is in constant use by the library for its programs and also serves as a meeting space for various civic and community groups.

Sandra and Jennifer Williams, Wife and daughter of the
late Marion Eugene (Pete) Williams will present his book,
A Cop's Dilemma. 

A Cop's Dilemma is all fictional and is both a sequel
to the first book and also a stand-alone book. The
first book's main character picks up his life as a
police Officer in the city of Asheville, N C. After
a fatal car accident is investigated, the officer
deals with out of state insurance men. A young
auto mechanic finds money from the wrecked
car and due to circumstances leaves town.
Eventually, a chase begins in Asheville traveling
from the mountains across the state to the
coastal town of Beaufort, N C. Scores are soon
settled in Beaufort, but the brother of one of he killed bogus insurance men is determined to
have revenge.

Please use the Jackson St. entrance.
