On Thursday, March 21, in addition to the basic library services offered every day, all Charlotte Mecklenburg Library locations will offer programs and activities that support the goal of the day, plus $5 fine waivers.

What you can do:

On March 21 and after, we encourage you to call 1-855-EVRY1ON (1-855-387-9166) and tell the operator your zip code or by entering your zip code at www.everyoneon.org, from a library or home, to find a local training facility in your area and use the free training on topics such as:
