1995 - Library of the Year
The Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County is named Library of the Year by Library Journal. It notes children's programs, genealogical resources and computer technology among the resources the library provides to a growing population with changing needs. Each year, the "Novello" festival draws thousands to see nationally known authors and book illustrators. The library has earned recognition for its innovative programs and community outreach.
