How would you like to receive notifications from the Library?

CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions.

Once you have completed the form, you will receive an email with your account information within 5 business days. This is an ecard account (instant access to all of Charlotte Mecklenburg Library's online resources) until you have paid your non-resident fee. You have 3 days to pay the fee. If the fee is not paid, then your account will be deleted.  


After your fee has been paid, you will have a full-service account that can be used to access all digital materials and resources, to place holds and check out physical items from any branch.
