Authenticity, Literacy and Community

Authenticity. An authentic storyline was the goal for The President is Missing  when Bill Clinton and James Patterson began writing. And an authentic love of books and literacy was the impression they conveyed to an audience of over 1,000 readers on November 29 at the Knight Theater.

Books, Beer...and Connection

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation’s Friends Council began its Final Draught series in 2017 with a simple goal: To connect new audiences with the Library by inviting diverse and charismatic local thought leaders to discuss a wide range of topics. With generous sponsorship from Red Ventures, Final Draught has become a hot ticket, featuring topics ranging from the local food scene to side hustles in the gig economy to authentic leadership. Audiences come for the beer, the books, the topics…and increasingly, the networking.

Epic Impact

On November 2 and 3, 2018, over 5,000 students, teachers and families will meet an author or an illustrator, discover a favorite story, or realize they too have a story to tell. An epic start to a lifetime of literacy is the legacy of one family. 

Books, Wine, and So Much More

When Kara Hunt started her book club, Rosé and Prosé, in January of 2017 the goal was simple: bring together a group of women to share books and wine. Kara and about a dozen other women met every other month and did just that – and the group toasted their first year at Verse & Vino in November. That’s where an idea was born.

Leading the Way

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Opportunity Task Force released its Leading on Opportunity report last year. Organizations and individuals throughout our community are galvanizing in response to its recommendations around improving economic mobility for our city’s children. Your Library is ready, because providing access to opportunity is in our DNA.

A New Chapter

The re-opening of Morrison Regional Library is more than a homecoming for the neighborhood. It’s also a new chapter in Library technology and customer service for the entire Charlotte Mecklenburg Library system – written in partnership with Library users.
