Become a Friend

Friends of the St. Louis Public Library provide annual support for a number of St. Louis Public Library (SLPL) programs and initiatives, including Born to Read, an early childhood literacy initiative serving families of children birth to age eight.

When it comes to literacy, too many children in our community fall behind their more fortunate peers and for the 39.3% of St. Louis City children living below the poverty line, access to crucial learning resources are out of reach. Through services like Born to Read bags for newborns and programs like Read It Together, SLPL opens up a world of free resources for St. Louis families.

Funding for programs like Born to Read is made possible with the generous support of friends like you. Please join us in providing free access to life-changing opportunities to our community. Your gift today ensures a better future for our city’s children
