Letter: St. Louis libraries serve many of community’s needs

St. Louis County Library reopens

Tables and chairs are stacked June 30, 2020, at St. Louis County Library, which reopened June 18 with limited services. 

Regarding “St. Louis County Library announces its reopening day” (March 16): I would like to note that libraries — both county and city — have not really been totally closed; they have continued to serve their neighborhood communities. They have adopted curbside pick-up to provide library resources and more. Both St. Louis city and St. Louis County libraries have also partnered with community organizations to enable curbside pick-up of masks, meals, period supplies, diapers, and recently, gun locks. As a volunteer with Lock It for Love which provides the gun locks to the libraries, I am particularly appreciative of their support for safe firearm storage to reduce unintentional shootings involving children.

St. Louis should be proud that our libraries have such a broad view of their role serving their communities. Thank you to St Louis Public Library and St. Louis County Library.
