YOUR LIBRARY FOUNDATION HELPS THE CHARLOTTE MECKLENBURG LIBRARY IMPROVE LIVES AND BUILD A STRONGER COMMUNITY

A gift to your Library Foundation is an investment in:

EDUCATIONAL SUCCESS

Your Library is working with Read Charlotte, Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, higher education and other area educational leaders to improve literacy rates and build a community of lifelong learners.

ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY

Providing access to the information, resources and connections that lead to opportunity have always been at the core of your Library’s mission.

DIGITAL INCLUSION

1 in 5 Mecklenburg County residents don’t have internet access at home. Your Library connects the whole community with free access to the latest technology and the training needed to use it.

WHY WE GIVE

Every gift makes a difference. Private support is the greatest endorsement of our belief that free and open access to information can change lives for the better and build a brighter future for the community we share.
