Friends of the Library

Support from Friends of the Library members has
enriched the library experience for many years!
Who We Are
The Friends of the Library are a group of supporters who choose to invest in the future of St. Charles County through the literacy and educational initiatives of the Library District. The Friends make it possible to meet increased demands placed on the Library District due to the growing population. In addition to membership dues, funds are raised through our annual book fairs and merchandise sold in library branches.
