Thank You Barnes and Noble

 Thank you Barnes & Noble for hosting a holiday book drive for Charlotte Mecklenburg Library's Community Book Shelf Program. Donations from the Barnes and Nobles book drive will be used to fill library book shelves in several community locations including WIC offices(Woman, Infants and Children) Department of Social Services waiting room, Solomon House, Ada Jenkins CenterThe Latin American Coalition and other community locations.Our book shelves provide literacy-rich environments in some of  our more challenging communities and neighborhoods. These book shelves supports literacy, learning and education beyond our traditional library locations. Imagine visiting DSS for family support and having the opportunity to not only read to your child, but take a book or two home to continue the learning experience. For more information on the community bookshelf program or hosting a book drive for the library contact Ursula Guidry at uguidry@cmlibrary.org
