Charlotte Mecklenburg Library
Safety measures all in place. Summer hours. Pick-ups and returns only, one patron or family with children at a time. No shelf browsing or the usual summer children's programs. :( Books must be reserved online in advance. Courteous staff. Great smartphone app!
The staff here has been awesome, especially during Covid-19. They've been sitting outside in the hot sun for hours just to make sure each of us can grab a book (they even had water for anyone standing in line!). They've set up a very efficient system to get people in and out quickly during this time. Really impressed and want to thank all of you for giving of your time. This is the only location I ever come to because I know I'll always have a great experience.
It's great the library is open again! One inside at a time is a pain.... but what can you do? That's everywhere now almost. The shelves for the holds has more than doubled. They robo-called to let us know, nice for this purpose.
Nice renovations but IMO the branch is too small and there is not enough parking. It always seems crowded. Every time we come to this location we drive around in circles waiting for spaces to free up and then everyone in the children's area is almost arm to arm. They didn't plan well regarding size and the parking.
You can only pick up reserved books. Not fully open. So reserve books and go pick up
