What Can I Do At The Library?
How Can I Access The Library?
Anyone who visits a library location can use our wifi, attend programs, or look at any of our books or magazines–for free. If you want to take materials home with you or access our online resources, you will need to get a library card, which is completely free of charge for Mecklenburg County residents. We have both regular library cards, which you can apply for by visiting a branch, and virtual library cards, which you can apply for completely online.
What You Need to Get a Library Card:
