This branch is closed
Located uptown in the heart of Charlotte's Arts & Education district, the Main Library offered a multitude of services, materials, programs and meeting rooms. The 157,000 sq. ft. building, centrally located, closed to public on Friday, October 29, 2021 at 5 p.m. to move forward on plans to build a new state-of-the-art, architecturally-distinct destination library that is scheduled for completion in late 2025.
Main Library supported the activities of the Library's 19 branch locations and outreach services. The iconic columns in front of the Main Library building showcased popular quotes on reading and learning from famous people across time.
While Main Library is closed, customers are encouraged to visit any of the other 19 branch locations. ImaginOn: The Joe and Joan Martin Center as well as our new interim location CMLibrary @ Founders Hall are the preferred locations serving Uptown.
