Located uptown in the heart of Charlotte's Arts & Education district, the Main Library offers a multitude of services, materials, programs and meeting rooms. This 157,000 sq. ft. building, centrally located, supports the activities of the Library's nineteen branch locations and outreach services. The columns in front of the Main Library building showcase quotes on reading and learning from famous people across time.
The Main Library is a Federal Depository Library.
Upcoming Events at the Main Library
In preparation for Main Library's renovation, we are upping our "book sale game" during summer 2019. Each week on Monday morning we'll stock the book sale with surplus and outdated items from our special collections.
Sign up for a 1 hour individual session with a library staff member to get help with computer basics, Microsoft Office, Internet, email, or other topics. Call 704-416-0101 or come to the Reference Desk on the second floor of Main Library.
