2017 End of Year Giving

Thank you! Your Gift Changes Lives!

In 2017, you helped our community in so many ways:

  • 650 kids attended 37 free summer camps
  • Over 3,800 Homework Helper sessions
  • 9,728 Summer Reading Club participants
  • 700 free books given out through Read It Forward
  • And so much more!

With 39.3% of St. Louis City children living in poverty, too many families cannot afford the same access to books, technology, programs and other resources that many of us take for granted.

Regardless of economic standing, everyone who enters one of the 17 SLPL locations is on equal footing.

In 2018, we need your help to support and enrich our community through programs like Born to Read, a bold, new early childhood initiative aimed at giving children from birth to age eight – and their families – crucial learning tools and resources.

Make your donation now to keep the windows to the world open and change lives for the better.
