WENATCHEE - North Central Washington (NCW) Libraries is inviting everyone in its five-county service area to participate in National Library Week celebrations from April 7-13. The library system, which operates 30 branch locations across Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Okanogan, and Ferry counties, offers a wide range of resources, including books, movies, educational programs, book clubs, arts and crafts classes, author talks, movie nights, and weekly story times.

In addition to its branch locations, NCW Libraries features a community bookmobile, a unique Mail Order Library, and Latinx and STEM outreach services.
