September, 2021 – We appreciate your interest and support of the Marianna Black Library. After exploring several options for a much-needed new facility over the past 10 years, we are now working on a multi-phased plan to expand and renovate the current building. A topographical survey, a site plan and a 3-D rendering of  the building expansion have been completed. The architect is working on the interior layout and exterior facade.

Look for updates about our plans in November, 2021. In the meantime if you have any questions or comments – or would like to volunteer to assist with the campaign – please contact Jeff Delfield, librarian, at or by phone at 828-488-3030, ext. 128.

Contributions for the library are being accepted. Donor forms are available at the library or may be requested from Jeff. Checks should be made payable to the Marianna Black Library Fund, and delivered to the library or mailed to 33 Fryemont Street, Bryson City, NC 28713. All gifts are tax-deductible as provided by law and will be acknowledged by letter. Naming opportunities are available.

We are very excited to be moving forward with this worthwhile project, which will benefit all citizens of Swain County.
