Library Resources Exploring Social Justice and Race Relations

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library’s mission is to improve lives and build a stronger community. Our staff provides resources, space, information and materials to everyone in our community. Everyone is welcome in our libraries.

Your support allows Charlotte Mecklenburg Library to quickly respond to unplanned needs with timely and relevant resources. Please consider making a gift to the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation to continue this important work.
