Give directly to your branch

Gifts to a specific branch will help Library staff develop and enhance programs, provide much needed supplies, and support the branch’s facility priorities like digital inclusion.

In the form below, select your branch in the “I want to support:” dropdown menu.

Would you like to stock the shelves at your branch?

A gift of $25 puts a new book on the shelf and will include a bookplate personalized with your name and, if you like, a tribute to a friend or family member. You may choose between either a children’s or an adult book, and either fiction or nonfiction. Let us know your book preferences in the Notes section.

If you’d like to stock an entire shelf, an investment of $1,000 increases the Library’s collection by 40 new titles and includes a membership for you into the Carnegie Circle. The name honors the legacy of philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who donated funds to help build libraries around the world, including our first library in Charlotte in 1903.
