Thank you.

Hello ,

I think we’re all ready to turn the page on 2020, but first I want to say thank you.

In an often-dark year, you’ve been a light. You’ve supported your Charlotte Mecklenburg Library in every way – through advocacy, financial support, and by embracing virtual programs, digital resources, and new in-person procedures. You protected neighbors and strangers with masks and physical distancing – yet stayed connected. You stood up for justice and equity, and that’s reflected in the books you checked out.

In some ways our community is stronger because of all we’ve experienced in 2020. For that I thank you, and wish you and yours a happy holiday season.

Looking ahead to a bright new year,


Jenni Gaisbauer, CFRE
Executive Director

P.S. There's still one day left to advocate for your Library in the County budget priorities survey. This 5-minute survey is open through the end of the day today, December 23. Remember that in question 1, your Library is bundled with Education. In question 3, you can write in "Charlotte Mecklenburg Library."
