The Board of Trustees for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library has challenged the community to raise the $2 million IMMEDIATELY that has been cut from the Library’s current (FY09-10) budget. I’m asking you to consider a tax deductible donation to the Library by March 26, 2010 to keep the 12 branches (148 layoffs) slated to be closed, open.
The ROI on $1 donated to the Library is $5.44 put back into the community.
This money must be raised by March 24, 2010.
The money cannot be designated to one branch. Our goal is to keep every branch open to serve our entire community!
The Library is critical to the education network of our community. We deliver equal opportunity education to all ages from early children’s literacy classes to late in life job training free of charge to all attendees.

Contributions received by March 31, 2010, will help lessen the severity of immediate library service reductions, and even after March 31, all contributions will continue to help us provide the best possible library services to the more than 17,000 adults and children we serve each day.
