Building Projects

Mecklenburg County Asset and Facility Management provides master planning, space planning, architectural design and construction administration services for Library capital projects. 

  • The website highlights major capital projects for libraries that have been ranked according to Mecklenburg County's Capital Improvement Project (CIP) process.

  • For more information about procurement and contract opportunities related to building projects, visit the Mecklenburg County procurement webpage.

The Library currently has no funded projects for new library branches as part of Mecklenburg County’s CIP process.  A new library branch would require additional ongoing operational funding in addition to the capital funding.

The Library has one new construction project underway. Projects funded in the CIP are approved annually by the Board of County Commissioners.

See current and completed building projects below.


Facilities Master Plan

The Facilities Master Plan provides a third-party assessment and recommendation of how Charlotte Mecklenburg Library can best serve the county by providing physical infrastructure for the next 15 years. It is focused on real estate needs and not specific library programs or operational needs. The FMP strongly reinforces the Library’s five strategic goals:

  • Increase access to libraries and library services.

  • Expand and maximize partnerships to drive community engagement.

  • Increase organizational capacity, excellence, and resilience.

  • Advance the Library as a diverse, equitable, and inclusive place for residents to work, visit, connect, and learn.

  • Increase access to and quality of technology both within and outside of Library locations.
