Future of the Library Task Force

Library Next StepsBoy in Library

In spring 2011, the recommendations of the Task Force were approved by the Mecklenburg County Board of County Commissioners along with the Library Board of Trustees. Funding for fiscal year 2012 was approved which allowed the Library to implement the Task Force’s recommendation to expand hours at six regional locations. Click here for Library locations and hours.

The Library will be use the report of the Task Force as its strategic plan until the creation of a new Library strategic plan in 2013. For additional information about Library operations, visit www.cmlibrary.org. The delivery of Library services is the result of a partnership between the Library and County. The Library is the managing partner, who delivers services, and the County is the funding partner, who provides the funding for those services.

Future of the Library Task Force--Design Team Report


The Task Force was first proposed during the spring 2010 County budget cycle, when stakeholders began discussing the need to create a stable funding platform for the Library.

At their budget straw vote, the Board of County Commissioners made the creation of a task force part of its contingency for library funding for FY2011.

In July, the Library received a grant for $75,000 from the Community Catalyst Fund of the Foundation for the Carolinas to fund the Task Force. Grant funds will be used to defray expenses of the Task Force, in addition to what is donated or provided by the Library and County.
