Book a Tour of the Library
Community Artist Gallery
Since January of 1979, the works of local artists have been displayed at the Library through our Community Artist Gallery program. The gallery is located on the main level of the Library. For more information about the gallery and the art that is showcased, or if you would like to feature your work, please send an email to our Programs and Public Relations Coordinator.
Art in the Library
The Library is home to one of the largest permanent art collections on display in our community. Through the years, the collection has grown from pieces acquired during the Works Progress Administration (WPA) era, to contemporary sculptures for our lawns. Media of many types from wood block prints to oils, and lithographs to photographs are represented as well as several bronze sculptures. We are grateful for the contributions of the St. Charles Public Library Foundation, the Friends of St. Charles Public Library and local benefactors.
Lobby Display Case
The St. Charles Public Library offers its main floor lobby display case without charge to nonprofit organizations and community members who wish to share a collection, broaden interest in or highlight a special program. There are four glass cases, each measure 34″ wide by 40″ high. There are glass shelves in each case that cannot be moved or removed. For more information, please contact our Program and Public Relations Coordinator.
Youth Services Display Case
Young patrons interested in displaying their collection can reserve the Youth Services display case, located in the lower level next to the Miller Haase Community Room. An application is available online or at the Youth Services Desk.
