Community Read Reaches Beyond Books

Community Read 2019 is over – but the conversations and relationships it sparked continue. And that was the point. Throughout March, our community came together around books. This year’s featured titles, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Wishtree by Katherine Applegate, and Love by Matt de la Peña provided readers of all ages opportunities to discuss important themes of compassion, perspective and understanding.

Google Fiber Invests in Digital Makerspace at ImaginOn

ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center has been called a playground for literacy and self-expression. Thanks to a generous gift from Google Fiber and additional support from the Knight School of Communication at Queens University, the playground just added some new high-tech equipment. 

Community Read 2019 Emphasizes Community

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library announces that The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas will be the main title for its annual Community Read program, held March 2019. The Library will lead a month-long community-wide effort to have adults and teens read and discuss The Hate U Give. To ensure the whole family participates, the Library has also selected companion titles for preteens and children: Wishtree by Katherine Applegate and Love by Matt de la Peña.

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. 

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.
