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.
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.

Reality has far surpassed all expectations.

If you participated in some part of Literary Weekend this year, you’re in good company – over 7,000 people celebrated the joy of libraries, books, literacy and a community of readers over three days in early November.
If you’ve peered through the construction fence at Morrison Regional Library lately, you know there are big changes in store and progress every day.
The back wall has been removed to make way for the first floor expansion. Next up is the removal and replacement of soil in the back of the building, in preparation for the footings required to support the addition.
