Independence Regional Library serves the diverse population of eastern Mecklenburg County. Located across from East Mecklenburg High School at the corner of Monroe Road and Conference Drive, the 18,700 square-foot library is large enough to supply many books, services, and activities while being small enough to maintain a friendly atmosphere. Ample parking is available for visitors.
