SUMMER SUNDAYS: All Library locations will be closed on Sundays from May 26 through September 1.

If you live in Mecklenburg County, please fill out the resident application. Applicants outside of the County will be issued a non-resident account for a fee annually.

Non-resident Library Card Application


How would you like to receive notifications from the Library?

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.
