Activity Overview

ImaginOn: the Joe & Joan Martin Center is an inspiring cultural center whose main aim is to challenge young minds and drive them to express themselves in many different forms. The facility came about through a collaborative effort between the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and the Children's Theatre of Charlotte. Today it provides a place for toddlers and teens alike to experience and take part in a raft of cultural activities and events designed especially for them.
