Welcome Message from Librarian

In times of change, it is helpful for public institutions to reaffirm who they are and what they believe in. It is important you know that Charlotte County Public Library continues to be a welcoming space for you. Libraries have always been a welcoming institution for all. Our very existence is the basis for this.

At Charlotte County Public Library, there is one guiding principle that speaks to this value: Respect and embrace the entire community.

While the world around us changes every day, there is one constant that is here for you - Charlotte County Public Library. Our doors are always open - no visa, membership or identification is required.

Never question, never doubt. Our libraries are open to everyone. Nothing required. Nothing to prove.


We are thrilled to welcome several of the most notable authors to publish new work in 2016 and 2017: Dan Chaon, Patty Yumi Cottrell, Alexandra Kleeman, John Pipkin, Deb Olin Unferth, Yoojin Grace Wuertz.

Each year, the New Fiction Confab invites a handful of America's most prominent early- and mid-career authors to Austin to spend a day leading writing workshops, reading their work, and engaging in conversations that offer the community an opportunity to explore and discuss contemporary fiction with authors shaping America's literary landscape.
