Save the Gift, Keep the Deduction!

Are you a person who has everything? Give your friends and family a break from shopping this year and pledge your birthday! Instead of gifts for you, invite your friends to make a gift to the Library Foundation. Their gift will provide free access to a world of resources for our community. Better than balloons, right? And it's easy to do and tax-deductible!

More Than a Story

If you’ve attended a Library storytime, you know reading with children is much more than speaking the words on the page. Reading together builds language, vocabulary and comprehension – and caregivers who engage in active reading maximize those rewards.

What's Sally Brewster Reading?

As the owner of independent bookstore Park Road Books, Sally Brewster gets to read books before they hit the shelves for most of us. This year her stack of previews includes some upcoming works of fiction by Charlotte-based authors: The Barrowfields, by Phillip Lewis (release date 3/7/17)

A Delicious Evening with Vivian Howard

This year’s Carnegie Circle donor appreciation event was delicious in every way. The annual dinner, presented this year by Bank of America and supported by Foundation For The Carolinas, is an opportunity for the Library Foundation to recognize and thank donors who invest $1,000 or more each year in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. It was held on February 13 at Foundation For The Carolinas, where a crowd of 160 Library supporters gathered to mix, mingle and hear from Vivian Howard: chef, television host, and cookbook author.
