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.
Last spring when Charlotte Mecklenburg Library programming staff, the Library Foundation, and Carowinds leadership finalized a Summer Break partnership, we all had high hopes for the collaboration.
Reality has far surpassed all expectations.
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.
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.
Your Library changes lives, one person at a time. Here are a few of those (real) people:
Amelia is a student who uses Library resources with her ONE Access account, and recently received a Library wifi hotspot to use at home. That connectivity, combined with the laptop she received through E2D (Eliminate the Digital Divide), has made her study time more productive and focused, and she is able to complete her school assignments independently.
Are you interested in learning more about a specific branch, program or service? Please contact us to arrange a tour with Foundation staff to better understand how the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library transforms lives and enriches the community we share.
