Love your library

It’s Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air. It doesn’t have to be just about chocolate and greeting cards, why not spread love and kindness in our community while we’re at it? Charlotte Mecklenburg Library appreciates the love you show the Library every day of the year, as users, advocates, volunteers and supporters. We want to use this opportunity as a way to let you know we love you back!


During the month of February, we invite you to share the love in many different ways with special events, storytimes and community service projects. Or just visit us to check out a book – it always warms our hearts to see you.
