Charlotte Mecklenburg Library

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library has not had an easy three years.  Mecklenburg County cut a big chunk of its budget.  In response, the library drastically cut hours.  But now library CEO Lee Keesler says things are moving in the right direction.  

What a difference three years makes.  Back then, library board meetings were somber affairs.  But at yesterday’s meeting, the mood was light.  There were even some jokes.
