Charlotte Mecklenburg Library
- Open Now
What's not to love about a beautiful building filled with books? Large enough to have a very wide selection (especially their cookbooks, call number: 641), and my son loves their kid's section on the ground floor. The terrace on the second floor is also amazing!
Fall of 21 incident The most aggressive & off-her-rocker librarian ever- will not be back! Was attacked verbally & intimidated physically by her standing way too close within my personal space as she shoved a basket of masks in my face while I checked myself out. I refused to interact with her- never said a word. My book was on hold, no one was even around & I was in/out (checking myself out w the check-out station within 3 mins or less). She put herself so close to me & harassed me the whole process through- I minded my business, continued with entering my info to scan my book out & promptly walked out (all right at the front door). Unbelievable & ridiculous. This whole city has gone down the tubes- very sad to see!! This whole incident caused me to never leave my house for even groceries again- only would order online. We sold our home & got the heck outta this place! Good luck, Charlotte!!
Cool makerspace, teens, kids, and study areas!
I have not been there since covid. The cornelius branch does not to be open at all. Most of the branches are closed on the weekends, and the last time i tried to check out a book i had to make a special trip to charlotte to renew my card which i have never had to do before in the 20+ years i have lived here. I go to mooresville if i need a library.
Wonderful place for children !!! I take advantage of the new book section and there is a good long print section also .
