The 2023 Community Read program is designed to help our community by creating community dialogue around themes of friendship and promoting a community of readers, learners and creating a platform for discussion. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation and National Endowment for the Humanities, the Library is able to give away a limited number of books at our branch locations. Beginning February 1, 2023 customers can request a free copy of one of the four Community Read titles to keep.

Book pick up will continue while supplies last. Call or visit your local branch location for more information. Each of the four Community Read titles are available for checkout in our collection as well with a Library card.

Everyone in the community can participate in Community Read: read a book, share perspectives, attend a program, engage on social media and build a stronger community together.
