The article presents the opportunities of incorporating the U.S. urban Appalachians literature and library service to the service itself and the librarians. It notes that by exploring the history of urban Appalachians, librarians could gain a better understanding on how to reach out to the population which constitutes a sizable population in the U.S. Moreover, it suggests that libraries located in areas populated with Appalachians should consider building collections, programs and services that aim at educating the public about Appalachian culture.
