ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role played by the presence or absence of printed materials, in the form of books collected in libraries, in North Carolina until 1800. Several reasons are presented why print culture was not developed enough in North Carolina during colonial and Revolutionary times to encourage the permanent establishment of either private or community libraries.
