Library Renovation Project

The staff and Board of Maplewood Public Library would like to extend their gratitude for the community's support in passing our recent bond issue! While our primary goal is waterproofing, we have numerous projects we will be completing during this time. Check back soon for a complete list! We are working with Navigate Building solutions to guide us through this project. You can learn more about them here. We have also engaged the team at Trivers to lead project design. You can learn more about them here.

In order to get the work done efficiently, safely, and in a way that best utilizes our funds, we will be closing the building to the public and offering curbside services beginning June 10, 2024. This is expected to last through February 2025. During this time, you will still be able to borrow books, and staff will be more than happy to make copies, scan, fax, and print for you. See below for a full list of services offered. Don't forget: Maplewood residents can use their Maplewood Public Library card at any of the libraries in the Municipal Library Consortium. Maplewood residents also eligible to get a card from St. Louis Public Library, St. Louis County Library, St. Charles City-County Library, Jefferson County Library, and Scenic Regional Library.

When you arrive at the Library, park at the east end of the building (closest to the school) and call 314-781-7323 or text 314-781-2608 to let us know you're here!
