Charlotte Branch

The Charlotte Branch Library offers a small-town library atmosphere in the city. We’re located on a main thoroughfare, but are nestled into the heart of the residential Charlotte neighborhood. We’re just a few blocks away from scenic Lake Ontario. In addition to a well-balanced collection of current books, movies, music and games, the Charlotte Branch Library offers a lively assortment of programs. Children can enjoy regular story times and creative activities as well as special events and guest performers. Teens and adults have ongoing crafting programs and special events. Our adult book club meets monthly, as does our very popular local history series. Basic computer tutoring is available by appointment. We house good large print and local history collections.
