Yesterday was Giving Tuesday, and on this global day of philanthropy many worthy organizations ask for support. We looked at Library services through the eyes of Bedford Book, an exuberant Library ambassador who happens to be a golden retriever.
On this Giving Tuesday, we are surrounded by messages encouraging and celebrating philanthropy, and worthy organizations across the globe share statistics to demonstrate the scale of their impact. With so much emphasis on the big picture, it’s easy to lose sight of the real way our Charlotte Mecklenburg Library makes a difference: one individual at a time.
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.
This year, we welcomed four new members to the Library Foundation's board...and of course we asked what they're reading! Gene Cochrane shared what's on his bookshelf these days:
Unbelievable: My Front Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History, by Katy Tur
The book is her account of being assigned to the Trump campaign and following the course of events until the election.
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.
