Main Library Replacement Project

For more than a century, a library has stood on the 300 block of North Tryon Street, reinventing itself to meet the changing needs of the growing Charlotte-Mecklenburg community. The new Main Library will remain at this historic location, where it is poised to become a true public commons: the gateway and heartbeat of the North Tryon corridor; the flagship location for the Library system; the principal local hub of community information, history and archives; and a dynamic destination where all residents of Charlotte-Mecklenburg are transformed into a connected community. Proximity to both public transit and parking will insure that the Library’s resources – and the opportunities they afford – are accessible to people from all parts of the community.
