NC Cardinal

NC Cardinal is a growing consortium of public libraries in 40 North Carolina counties dedicated to sharing resources and expanding opportunities through the use of a single online catalog. NC Cardinal expands items available to you from about 50,000 items in Polk County Public Libraries to over 6.4 million statewide!

Full access to the NC Cardinal consortium becomes available!

  • Request books, movies, music and more from any NC Cardinal library and have them delivered to Columbus or Saluda, free of charge
  • Use your Polk County library card at Henderson and Buncombe County public libraries, or at any other NC Cardinal library.
  • Return your borrowed materials at any NC Cardinal library.

If you have questions about NC Cardinal, if you need help with a new feature, or you run into anything weird, please let us know! Call or visit either library, or email
