About HomeGrown

The NC LIVE HomeGrown Collection consists of more than 4,800 locally-published ebook and audiobook titles made available to more than 200 libraries across the state. The collection includes titles from North Carolina publishers like Algonquin Books, CrossRoad Press, UNC Press, Duke University Press, McFarland, Press 53, Gryphon House, John F. Blair, and Workman that are available in perpetuity with unlimited, simultaneous access, which means no holds, no checkout limits, and no wait lists. Immediate access for everyone, at any time, forever.


A Community Effort


The HomeGrown project is a testament to the spirit of collaboration characteristic of North Carolinians in general and North Carolina libraries in particular. Over the past six years, the collection has grown through generous annual donations from NC LIVE member libraries. We'd like to thank those who have pledged funds in the past for the collection. Last year alone, your libraries’ pledges brought users unlimited access to 696 ebook titles and 3 streaming videos, all published right here in our home state.

A list of titles purchased with the 2021-2022 pledge funds.

Now available: Flexible Invoicing!

It's a new pledge year, and we're trying something different! In an effort to make invoicing/budgeting as easy for you as possible, we're offering flexible invoicing options! Now, when you pledge funds to HomeGrown, you can select:

  • What quarter you'd like to be invoiced
  • If you'd like to be invoiced at that time every year
  • If you're unsure if or how much to pledge, and you'd like us to check back with you at the end of April

Pledge Today

Please plan to pledge at least $300 to this collection once again in 2022-2023 to help us reach our goal of 500 additional ebooks. At this form, you can pledge now or request to be contacted again later in the year.

Contribute to HomeGrown

Thank you for your generous donations and continued investment in North Carolina's shared collections!
