History of the Library

A library in Charlotte was first established on November 19, 1894 when the Common Council levied a tax of 1/2 mil to provide a free public library and reading room to residents. After many years in rental spaces, a committee was appointed to contact Andrew Carnegie for help in establishing a permanent   library. In 1903 the new library building, a gift of Andrew Carnegie, was opened to the public.

 

Space in the library building began to grow tight. In 1986 The Charlotte Library Project, Inc. was formed to seek out a new location for the public library and one year later a new building was purchased.  The new building was formerly a Felpausch Grocery Store so major renovations were necessary. Renovations began in 1990 and were finally completed in April 1994. The new building became open to the public in September 1994.
