Libraries connect communities. Books and stories inspire us, teach us, entertain us, and bring us together.

Bookmark the Town yard signs support your Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, show your appreciation for libraries, and share your favorite books – all at once! Plant a (physical or virtual) sign with a gift of $15 or more and help community grow.

Opening a book can open a conversation…together let’s build a stronger community and Bookmark the Town!

Pick up a sign today at any Library location!

Planting a sign is easy!

Physical (and virtual!) are popping up all over Mecklenburg County! Our goal is to “plant” 5,000 signs this spring. Reserve your sign now and pick it up at any Library location!

Step 1: Reserve your sign at the link above, and pick it up at your selected Library branch. Downloadable digital signs are also available and will be emailed to you following your order.

Step 2: Fill in your book recommendation(s) – check out some of your neighbors’ recommendations below.

Step 3: Post your sign or put it in the ground – and leave it for as long as you like. You can plant more than one, or change the book recommendation as you read new books.

Step 4: Take a photo and share it with us on social media! Use the hashtag #bookmarkthetown

Please note: The City of Charlotte has some regulations about where signs can be planted. Check the rules here.
