Library Temporarily Shifts to Enhanced Curbside Services


St. Charles City-County Library has temporarily shifted to curbside or drive-up delivery only. Due to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in St. Charles County and recent closures of individual branches due to exposure, the Library is prioritizing the health and safety of customers and staff by temporarily closing in-branch library service.


While Library buildings are closed:

  • Customers can pick up items on hold using drive-up or curbside services. Find details about curbside services (including hours and locations), here.

  • WiFi service will be available in all Library parking lots.

  • Bookdrops will remain open.

  • Outreach Services for the homebound will continue. 

  • Need a whole stack of stuff?⁣
    Request book, movie, or music bundles (for yourself or your kids) and pick up your items curbside. ⁣
    Use our "We Recommend" service to tell us a little bit about your interests or needs and get a list of personalized recommendations from library staff. Please give us a few days to assemble your custom bundle!

During curbside hours, customers can make appointments via phone or through Ask Us for the following services:

  • One hour of in-branch desktop computer usage. (Customers utilizing this service must be resident or paid nonresident cardholders, will be limited to 1 hour per day, and must wear masks at all times.)

  • Print or fax services. 

  • Chromebook computers for limited use on Library grounds.

Customers are asked to please contact the branch they want to visit for specific service information.
