By our Smarty friends at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library

Here are just a few ways to enjoy the Library while you travel this summer.
Enjoy some beach reads.
Relax with a good book, whether you are at the beach literally or just in your mind. Check out a copy of one of this season’s notable beach reads, and don’t forget your sunscreen!
Make more room in your luggage with downloadable books.
Have limited space in your luggage, but want to take enough reading material for the whole trip? Try out e-audiobooks and e-books. The Library offers a wide variety of titles – from children’s to young adult to adult fiction and nonfiction. Check out all the ways to access these titles and more on the Library’s website.
