Special Needs

As a result of the partnership between Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and the Autism Society of North Carolina’s Mecklenburg County Chapter, training videos have been produced by Charlotte Mecklenburg Library staff members who have been planning and presenting programming specific to children with special needs and their families since 2008.  In recent years, programming has expanded to reach children, teens, and adults with special needs.  Programming is geared for all types of special needs and includes individuals on the autism spectrum.


Through 20 locations, targeted outreach and online, the Library delivers exceptional services and programs, with a mission to create a community of readers and empower individuals with free access to information and the universe of ideas. Here are highlights of services you can find at your library.
