Charlotte Mecklenburg Library to expand hours starting Sept. 2

Get excited, Library lovers, because many locations of Charlotte Mecklenburg Library will soon be open an extra day and for extended hours!

Thanks to the support of Mecklenburg County, starting Sept. 2, the Library will expand service from five to six days a week for the community/neighborhood libraries (including Cornelius, Davidson, Hickory Grove, Matthews, Mint Hill, Mountain Island, Myers Park, Plaza Midwood, Scaleybark, Steele Creek, Sugar Creek, and West Boulevard) and from six to seven days a week for the central libraries (Main Library and ImaginOn).

“The expanded and consistent hours mean that Mecklenburg County residents have more convenient access to library services like job searching, homework support, early literacy programs, and the Internet, every day of the week. We are grateful for the support from Mecklenburg County and the community,” said Director of Libraries David Singleton.

The expanded hours were made possible as a result of Mecklenburg County’s funding support, as recommended by the County Manager and approved by the Board of County Commissioners in the FY 2015 budget process.

New & Expanded Charlotte Mecklenburg Library hours:

• Monday through Thursday: 10 a.m.-8 p.m.

• Friday and Saturday: 10 a.m. -5 p.m.

Sunday service (1-5 p.m.) will continue to be provided at Main, ImaginOn and the regional libraries (Beatties Ford Road, Independence, Morrison, North County, South County, and University City) during the school year.
