To help communities create and maintain a foundation for literacy, economic development and democracy. The AMY (Avery-Mitchell- Yancey) Regional Library System is a regional system serving the citizens of Avery, Mitchell, and Yancey Counties. The administration and staff of the AMY Regional Library strive to be an integral part of the daily lives of the residents in our 3 counties. It is our duty and responsibility to provide all residents with unique and excellent educational, recreational, informational, and cultural resources and services throughout each individual’s lifespan. By building collaborative relationships with other agencies and institutions which have similar missions and goals, we are able to enhance the services of both and make the most effective use of our financial support.
