About Us

This is an exciting time for the St. Louis County Library. We’re in the midst of a capital improvement campaign to update or replace 19 library branches. Visit one of our new or renovated branches and you’ll be amazed by the transformation. New amenities like interactive children’s areas, private study rooms, comfortable seating and quiet reading areas have been very popular with our patrons. In addition to improving our buildings, we’re introducing new and innovative programs like Sensory Story Time for families with children on the autism spectrum, Listen Up STL a collection of local music available to stream on the library’s website, and 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, a program designed to give kids a head start in school by encouraging them to read. 

As the Director of St. Louis County Library and on behalf of the Library Board of Trustees and our employees, I want to let you know how honored we feel to provide library service to you. Thank you for using St. Louis County Library.

Kristen Sorth,
St. Louis County Library Director and CEO
