First 64U Books for Kids a Resounding Success - THANK YOU!

Thank you to everyone who supported 64U Books for Kids - and to TV-64 for choosing Charlotte Mecklenburg Library as a partner in this effort. For one month in late March and early April our customers, WSOC-TV/TV-64 viewers and our community united to support reading and literacy programs and services at Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. The generosity we have seen is inspiring, and will help your Library continue to improve lives and build a stronger community.

Van Every Foundation Support Takes DigiLit on the Road!

For the last two years, the Library’s DigiLit program has helped to bridge the digital divide through a curriculum for adults that includes computer hardware, software and web basics, social media, and an overview of digital resources available at the Library, from e-books to online courses. Thanks to generous support from the Philip L. Van Every Foundation, DigiLit will more than double its reach this year.

Library Partners with 64U to Collect Books for Kids

More books in a child's home leads to higher reading scores, better academic performance and results in greater opportunities in life. That's why the Library has partnered with WAXN-TV to collect new and gently-used children’s and teen books through the 64U Books for Kids book drive.
