Wake County Opens Northeast Regional Library

Residents in Northern Wake County now have access to 140,000 new books, daily children's programs and dozens of computers, as the new Northeast Regional Library opened its doors on Saturday, April 16. The library is located at 14401 Green Elm Lane in Raleigh.

"After years of planning and construction, we are excited to open Northeast Regional Library," said Wake County Public Libraries Director Michael Wasilick. "This new library will allow us to meet the growing demand for library service in northern Wake County."

The highly anticipated library, made possible with funds from the 2003 bond referendum, is the seventh regional library in the Wake County Public Library system.

The one-story, 22,000 square-foot library is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certified, and has an open V-shape design with large windows and skylights. The library features youth and adult spaces, 140,000 new books for all ages, ADA accessibility and 29 new public access computers with WiFi capability.

The facility also has 125 parking spaces, an 800 square-foot youth programming room and a 600 square-foot adult programming room. The library is expected to become the cornerstone of the rapidly growing northeast Raleigh and Wake Forest communities.

Northeast Regional Library's operating hours are:

  • Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.;
  • Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and
  • Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
