New Home for the Special Collections Department

The St. Louis County Library Foundation recently announced a change in plans for the proposed Center for Family History. The genealogy center will now be housed in one of SLCL's new building projects, either at the new Headquarters location or another branch. The Library Foundation had been raising funds to construct a standalone building on a parcel of land donated by Sachs Properties. Although the project generated considerable interest among the community, it failed to raise the funds necessary to proceed with a groundbreaking by the May 2013 deadline stipulated in the land agreement. As a result, the land was rescinded on May 22, 2013. Donors were notified of the change in scope to the project and have been supportive of the revised plans. For more information or questions on the project, please call 314-994-3300.
