Clean Places, Friendly Faces


“We invest in the communities we join.”

Clean places, friendly faces: That could describe libraries – and fittingly, it’s the slogan of our new corporate sponsor, Love’s Travel Stops.

When Love’s opened its first Charlotte travel stop last month, general manager Christopher Frey was invited to choose a local non-profit to receive a corporate donation. “Love’s is a family-owned company, and we have a culture of community and customer service. As a company, we make it a priority to invest in the communities we join.” For Frey, choosing Charlotte Mecklenburg Library was easy. “I’ve always been a reader, and I can’t imagine a greater way to make a positive impact in this community than to invest in literacy through the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation.”

Frey and his staff presented a check for $2,000 at the travel stop’s ribbon-cutting on July 30. The unrestricted gift will be split evenly among the Library’s twenty branches and used for programming and staff development.

Welcome to the community, Love’s Travel Stops!
