The St. Charles Public Library invites the community to explore the new look of the library during an open house from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 11.
The event marks the completion of a renovation project which began in February of this year. The open house will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony facilitated by the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce, tours, refreshments and entertainment. Patrons are invited to stop by to meet the new Library Director Pam Leffler.
Features of the project include remodeling of Youth Services area with a new early literacy area, furnishings, additional computer stations and a new family restroom; relocation of the Reference Desk to a new location closer to the main entrance; new Info Commons area, Help Desk and additional computer stations; remodeling of the lobby and staircase; new paint, wallpaper and signage; carpet replacement; and other improvements.
The St. Charles Public Library has been in its current location since 1908. Philanthropist Andrew Carnegie donated $12,500 to the library board to construct a free public library building for St. Charles in December of 1906. The library is at One S. Sixth Ave., St. Charles.
