Carnegie Circle Dinner: An Evening with Susan Orlean
This annual invitation-only event celebrates members of the Carnegie Circle, over 200 Library supporters whose annual gifts of $1,000 or more create a community where reading, learning and imagination thrive.
The name honors the legacy of philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who donated funds to help build libraries around the world, including ours in Charlotte in 1903. We can’t think of a better way to recognize those individuals, businesses, and foundations who demonstrate similar philanthropic leadership today.
