How much do you love your library here at CSL? Our new library provides a beautiful, quiet place to study, reflect, check your email and check-in on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, among other things.
Why do you come to the library? To study, meditate, center yourself for the day’s work ahead? Could there actually be reference materials needed for your next class? The assistance of a professional law librarian who can guide you in your research needs? Technical assistance in accessing the many electronic databases we have to offer?
You should stop by your library today. Pick up a bookmark and check out the hearts at Circulation and Reference – tell us what your library means to you. They will be available all month for your comments. What do you like? What would you like to see more of? Wishes? Expectations? Dreams? Thoughts?
See you in the library!
Last Friday, children streamed through the halls of Charlotte Plaza, enjoying the annual Halloween festivities organized by PALS (Parents Attending Law School). While the library’s temporary location did prevent us from being able to turn our floor into a Halloween wonderland, we were able to represent in style by commandeering a table and carving out our own spooky niche to distribute candy to our tiniest members of the Charlotte Law community. We’re already looking forward to next year, when we will have the opportunity to transform our new space into another Halloween wonderland…

A few months ago Charlotte premiered its newest park, the Romare Bearden Park. The 5.4 acre park is located only a few blocks from our Charlotte Plaza building at 300 S. Church St. In addition to the beautiful landscaping the park offers gorgeous waterfalls, and a children’s play area which is equipped with a splash ground during the summer months.
Whether you’re interested in music, the arts, family fun, or fitness it is likely that the park has something you are interested in. Coming up this weekend the park will host a pumpkin patch party, where there will be music, face-painting, pumpkin carving and lots of other fun activities. If you want to know more about the park or you want to see a schedule of events check out the parks website.
This Friday, September 20, marks the 49th year for Festival in the Park. This is the granddaddy of Charlotte area art and entertainment events. Every fall the Festival is held at Freedom Park which is the largest urban park in the city located at 1900 East Blvd.
There is something for everyone at the Festival and it is free to get in. Artists come from all over the country and from the world to exhibit their work. There are craftsmen making pottery, blowing glass, carving, weaving, you name it, it can be found at Festival in the Park. There is also a plethora of live music acts, dance performances, and street theater. And what would a festival be without food vendors, face painting, balloon artists, magicians, clowns, and caricaturists?
Festival in the Park is an experience and a great date night. Saturday night starting at eight pm, The Spongetones return for their annual gig at the park band shell. Below is a link for more information about the event. It is easy to get to the park by taking the Light Rail to the East/West Blvd. station and then catching a shuttle or bus to the park. If you are going to drive be warned that parking gets hectic.
Now that the Charlotte School of Law is located in the heart of uptown some of you may not want to deal with driving, traffic, or parking. Why not get a Lyft?? It’s an alternative to a taxi cab where you are greeted by a friendly fist bump and picked up by a car with a pink mustache.
According to their Facebook page, “Lyft is your friend with a car.” Lyft is an affordable ride service and social media community that is accessible by means of an app on your phone. It started in San Francisco and is now available in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, San Diego, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, St. Paul and Indianapolis. This new service launches in Charlotte Thursday, September 12th, 2013.
The Lyfters are celebrating their new service in Charlotte with a free launch party at Heist Brewery located at 2909 North Davidson Street, from 6:30pm to 10pm. There you’ll be able to enjoy local art, free food as well as an open bar. In addition anyone who attends will leave with $50 in Lyft credits for rides. All you have to do is to download the Lyft app onto your smartphone and show the app for admission to the launch party.
