St. Louis County Library Foundation has received a $200,000 donation from Emerson to sponsor a new St. Louis County Library (SLCL) bookmobile. This generous donation will fund a state-of-the-art mobile unit that will hit the road in the second half of 2024. The current SLCL bookmobile fleet is aging and in need of replacement. SLCL has made school bookmobile replacement a major priority in 2023 ensuring the Library District can continue providing equitable services to students in St. Louis County. The gift from Emerson is the third donation towards the new bookmobile fleet. Great Southern Bank and the Cardinals have both made donations in 2023 to sponsor a new bookmobile.
