Information may be mailed within Iredell County only in such cases as the patron
cannot physically come to the library.
Non-Iredell County residents who cannot visit us in person may request information
and copies by mail or email. Please limit requests to one query per letter.
For Non-Iredell County residents a fee of $5.00 per request is required at the
time the request is made. This fee covers up to ten pages of copies and up to one hour of staff research
time. Residents of Iredell County must remit 30 cents per page for copies mailed.
Requests should be as specific as possible including names, dates, and sources
when appropriate. For example, “Please send me a copy of Jane Jones obituary from the June 1, 1989 Statesville
Record & Landmark.”
Library staff can assist patrons in locating specific North Carolina General Statutes
or United States Codes only when patrons provide the appropriate citations. Staff members cannot, however,
interpret those items nor can they suggest or recommend specific legal forms or resources.
Tax forms and legal forms are not available by mail or email from the library.
These materials are only available to library patrons who come into the library and select them for themselves.
In response to a request for information from published sources, the staff
will attempt to answer one question about one person at a specific time in a specific county. Up to five
indexes may be searched for each request. Due to staffing constraints, we are unable to search
microforms or un-indexed materials for patrons.
