Dedication Day

Mark your calendars for a special 21st Anniversary Dedication Day on Sat., Sept. 10—the date when the Library officially moved into its current location at 170 W. Connecticut Avenue. Celebrate this “Happy Birthday” at the Library with the dedication of the new StoryWalk™ at 11:30 a.m. followed by light lunch refreshments, games, and crafts. The StoryWalk is a fun, literacy-focused activity that displays pages of a children’s picture book along a path around the Library, inspiring parents and kids to get outside to move and learn. The StoryWalk™ Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition (VBPC) and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

Walking Book Club


On the third Saturday of each month, join the Walking Book Club! Meet at the Library for a brisk walk through beautiful downtown Southern Pines to discuss current reads, make book suggestions, and enjoy being active outside. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing. The first session is Sat., Sept. 17, at 9:00 a.m.


Family Day


One Saturday each month we host Family Day @ the Library. Family Day includes crafts and activities throughout the day and is a wonderful opportunity for all ages learn the joy of reading and exploration. Friends of Southern Pines Public Library sponsor the series.
