  • Special Collection Support
  • Branch Renovations
  • Library Legends Recognition Event

The Foundation's Annual Campaign focuses on support for the TAKE 20 and READ literacy initiative as well as the Ready to Read and Books to You programs.

Jane Householder Scholarships

Additionally, the St. Charles City-County Library Foundation supports scholarship opportunities for library staff to expand their horizons and take enrichment classes that support lifelong learning.  This is done through funding in honor of Jane Householder.  Jane had a love of learning and would always bring her experiences in and share them with library patrons and staff.  It was something that she strongly believed everyone should do!  In honor of Jane, after her passing, the staff and her family thought this would be the best way to honor her.    Click here for a pdf of the Application and Guidelines.
