The new Main Library project takes top honors with Nerve readers

Queen City Nerve, Charlotte’s alternative newspaper, published their winners for this year’s “Best in the Nest” competition on November 29 and the new Main Library took the prize for “Best New Construction Project” by Nerve Readers.

The editor of Nerve states on their website: “Best in the Nest Readers’ Picks were chosen exclusively by readers through a one-month nomination process followed by a one-month voting process. The nominations were not tampered with by Queen City Nerve staff at all — save for removing ourselves from a few categories to proactively dispel any notions of favoritism. In other words, if you disagree with these ones, that’s on your fellow reader, not us. 2023 saw over 25,000 ballots cast between the nomination and final rounds of voting.”

The Library and the Library Foundation along with architects Snøhetta and Clark Nexsen, builder Rodgers | Leeper and Mecklenburg County officials definitely agree with Nerve readers. The new Library facility will be a center for knowledge, a place that welcomes all, and a jewel in the crown of the city.
