On Saturday, September 10, 2011, the Friends of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library will host the second annual Rock & Read 5K Run/Walk to support the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library system!

This year's event will be held at the Scaleybark Library Branch. Race day registration will be available.

Last year, at our first ever Rock & Read 5K, we raised over $13,000 for the library with over 500 runners, bands and music at every mile, and a festival atmosphere following the event in front of one of the finest library branches. We far exceeded our inaugural event goals, and the support from the community was amazing.

The Friends of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is a non-profit organization established to champion the efforts of the Public Library System. Our mission is to support the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library as a vocal advocate before elected officials, community leaders and citizens at large, and to raise funds to help achieve a level of excellence. For every $1 invested, the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library returns $4.57 in direct benefits to the community.

Are you, your business, or organization interested in participating with us as a sponsor of the 2011 Rock & Read 5K Run/Walk? Excellent opportunities are available at a level which works best for you. For more information please contact Jon Davis by email at or by telephone at (704) 641-6750.
