St. Louis Public Library
Keeping St. Louis connected.


After a year and a half of isolation due to the pandemic, we have learned that connection is key to individual, family and community life.

St. Louis Public Library (SLPL) adapted and innovated its services in order to keep people in touch with each other and the world around them.
Supporting St. Louis Public Library Foundation has a direct impact on the lives of those in our city. Your gift provides free internet access, digital resources, early childhood literacy programming and outreach services for thousands of St. Louis families.

Because of you, St. Louis Public Library...
