The St. Charles City-County Library Foundation is committed to supporting programs that take the services of our talented librarians outside of traditional Library experience and into the community. Through our funding, outreach and engagement the, Foundation will educate the county on services and programs offered by the district and bring people into our branches.

The Foundation is currently leading the way and engaging volunteers for two existing district initiatives; Library to You and Ready to Read. We have a long-term vision of creating programs that serve all ages from Pre-K, school-age, teen, adult and the senior community.

Library to You provides services to seniors and homebound individuals that are unable to visit one of our many locations. Through individual volunteer matching and delivery service, Library to You ensures all of St. Charles County is able to enjoy a true library experience in the comfort of their own home.

Ready to Read equips Pre-K children and their parents with the tools and best practices on reading fundamentals. Through the delivery of early literacy kits and advocating Every Child Ready to Read learning tactics, Ready to Read ensures that all children in St. Charles County are ready to read prior to starting kindergarten.

Take 20 and Read encourages everyone to read 20 minutes each day. Learn more about the importance of recreational reading in our lives.

The Storybook Walk provides a new outdoor adventure that champions family connection, early childhood development, and health and wellness. Stories are hand-picked by library staff with a child’s enjoyment in mind. Pages are posted at several stations along a trail, allowing families and friends to enjoy a story as they walk the path and take in the scenery. Learn more...
