The Beatties Ford Library opened on April 20, 1997, replacing the historical North Branch that served this neighborhood since 1957. This 19,645 sq. ft. branch is located in the heart of Charlotte’s Northwest business and residential corridor and serves a population with diverse needs.
In 2009, a renovation of the Beatties Ford Library began, with the goal of updating and expanding the facility to meet increased community demand. During the initial phase of renovation, the branch remained open with limited hours and services. However, on June 19, 2010, in light of significant cuts to Library funding, the Beatties Ford Library was closed to expedite the expansion and renovation effort. As part of the plan to cope with the funding cuts, Library trustees voted to approve a plan to make Beatties Ford Library the new regional library for the area, replacing nearby Freedom Regional Library.
On June 13, 2011, the expanded Beatties Ford Library reopened to the public to serve the community as a regional library for the area.
