Neighborhood Matching Grants Bring Little Free Libraries to Local Neighborhoods

The Neighborhood Matching Grants program, in partnership with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library Foundation Friends Council, is bringing Little Free Libraries to local neighborhoods.

A Little Free Library is a great way to share books with friends and neighbors. People walking by are allowed to take a book (or two) and return or replace it with a book of their own. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library Foundation Friends Council supports the initiative through book donations.

Neighborhoods interested in having a Little Free Library are asked to check their eligibility for Neighborhood Matching Grants and attend a pre-application workshop on Wednesday, March 19. The application deadline for the Neighborhood Matching Grants application is April 15.
