Celebrate Shout!

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is proud to be a part of  Charlotte SHOUT! to celebrate art, music, food and ideas in Uptown April 29 – May 11. Visit cltshout.com for more information and event listings.

Running May 9 – 11, 2019, About Face Charlotte will create a large scale, multimedia, multicultural, interactive installation, incorporating visual arts and technology. The installation, The Future is Now!, will wrap the exterior of  Charlotte Mecklenburg Library's Main Library in very large portraits of our youth and give the opportunity to hear their voices, creating a community sensory experience that will inspire viewers with a vision for the next 250 years in the Queen City. About Face Charlotte is partnering with internationally-known artist, JR and his global InsideOut Project, to print the large scale photographs.

If you're seeking more information on the history of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and North Carolina, the best resource is the Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room at Main Library. There you can work with our specialized staff for historical and genealogical information, maybe review all past issues of The Observer, or even look up the previous owners for your home.

SHOUT! is distinguished this year as the grand finale of CLT250, the celebration of Charlotte’s 250th anniversary.
