Why Federation is Invested

Libraries touch every member of our community, from childhood to old age. Since its establishment in 2004, the Levine-Sklut Judaic Library has served as an epicenter for lifelong Jewish learning as a core part of the Center for Jewish Education (CJE).

In the nearly 20 years since the library's establishment, the Charlotte Jewish community has grown and evolved. To better reflect our modern and advanced community, the CJE has launched a capital campaign for our library.

Your gift ensures that the Levine-Sklut Judaic Library grows into a contemporary space that serves our multigenerational community: from children reading their first Jewish storybook to adults meeting to gather and exchange ideas.

The Plan

The proposed facility updates and space modernization
re-envisions the library's key functions to create a user-centric and modern environment that better supports 21st century learning needs and modalities. These changes would put the Levine-Sklut Judaic Library on par with the redeveloped libraries throughout our Mecklenburg County system.

Modernization Goals

Once the renovation has been completed, the Levine-Sklut Library will include new workstations, new computers, an improved self-checkout and locating system, a redesigned children's room, and a much-needed community gathering space on Shalom Park.
Throughout the modernization process, we remain committed to ensuring the library serves as an accessible and welcoming information hub and gathering space for all, with a unique focus on education, technology, and community.
