St. Louis County Library Foundation

We're More Than You Imagined

Libraries change lives. By opening doors and resources to all, libraries bring communities together and provide equal opportunities to learn. 

Public tax dollars keep our libraries running, but funds raised by the St. Louis County Library Foundation helps your local library to do more, reach more, and be more. 

From summer lunches for kids to sold-out events with bestselling authors, our programs are building a vibrant public library system, one reader at a time. 

When you support the St. Louis County Library Foundation, your donation goes to where the funds are most needed. The community, the patrons, the kids and families will benefit from the resources that you provide. With your support, we can continue to build thriving communities.
