School age children create stories through outreach

The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, by Chris Van Allsburg, is a book made of mysterious pictures, each accompanied by a title and a caption. This book was recently used in a Charlotte Mecklenburg Library outreach program for school age children in grades 4-7. 

Outreach Services

Outreach is for everyone!

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library’s services extend beyond our physical locations. We are committed to providing all community members access to our staff, resources and services. Our goal is to provide services to some of the highest need and under-served populations in our community. Whether a person is homebound, in senior housing, within correctional facilities, living with disabilities, living in transition or new Americans, Outreach Services brings the Library experience and resources to the community.

Feeding Tummies and Minds

Not all children in Mecklenburg County have the opportunity to participate in Charlotte Mecklenburg Library’s Summer Reading program—or any summer learning activities. For this reason, the Library’s Outreach department works very hard to bring library services and experiences to children and families who cannot use the library in a traditional manner.
