Neighborhood Matching Grants

Little F​ree Libraries

Neighborhood Matching Grants has partnered with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation Friends Council to bring Free Little Libraries to Charlotte neighborhoods.

 What is a Little Free Library?

A Little Free Library is a way to create strong communities by connecting neighbors through free grass-roots book exchanges. People walking, biking or driving by your Little Free Library can 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.

How can I get a Little Free Library in my neighborhood?

  • As a result of additional support, this grant opportunity is now available citywide. 
  • Attend a pre-application workshop​
