Sampson-Clinton Public Library System (SCPL) has provided an additional tab, "Online Resource Guides", located in the menu toolbar. This tab contains various tutorials on how to access our many online resources such as eBooks, NC Live, Gale Testing Center, NCPedia, and much more.  In light of the NC Public School closings, these resources can provide supplementary content to help aid with student academic work. Moreover for patrons not able to commute at this time, there is online access to magazines, newspapers, and books.  If you have any further questions, please contact your nearest SCPL library location.

Summer Reading Program Activity Handbook

Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP)
The Teen Video Challenge, sponsored by the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), is an annual national video contest open to all teens (librarian and teacher support is encouraged). The challenge is for teens to create a public service announcement-type video that shows their unique interpretation of the 2020 CSLP slogan “Imagine Your Story.” Videos are to be no longer than 60 seconds and should promote libraries and reading.

The Library Board of Trustees believes that our citizens:

  • Should have the information they need.
  • Should have help locating any available information.
  • Should have entertaining reading materials and DVDs.
  • Should have free access to computers and the Internet.
  • Should have libraries where they feel welcome and valued.

To do that, our libraries serve people of all ages, beliefs, and backgrounds.  We purposefully collect books and materials that our patrons want and need.  We upgrade and rearrange our libraries to provide more computers and free Wi-Fi access at all of our branches. We actively search for and provide online resources and downloadable materials that will help our patrons access the information and entertainment they want from home.

Sampson-Clinton Public Libraries still have books - lots of them - but we are so much more. The Library is a place where people gather to explore, interact, and learn. The Sampson-Clinton Public Library invites everyone to enjoy library branches in Clinton, Garland, Newton Grove, and Roseboro where they will encounter staff who are ready and eager to help with whatever our patron need. Please stop by one of our branches and stay a while. We would love to have you.
