Services by Request
Interlibrary Loan is the ability to get our patrons materials that are not available at our library or within our SWAN consortium.
*Please note: Due to the way they are collected, our interlibrary loan statistical numbers are always one month behind.
Book Club Service
Our Book Club Service makes it easy to select titles and run book club discussions. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. You provide the Book Club – we’ll do the rest!
We provided books for 29 community book clubs. We offered and fulfilled titles for April, May, and June for clubs that opted in.

New Materials, Purchase Requests, and More!
We provide materials for patrons as fast as we can!
Also, this month Technical Services concluded updating the catalog locations of the entire collection to be more patron-centric and to match new locations in the renovated building!

Adult Outreach Programs
The June Activity Kit was distributed to eight senior facilities in the St. Charles community. The theme was patriotic holidays.
Youth Outreach Programs
3 Youth Service Librarians hosted a Summer Reading signup at Thompson Middle School in June. 25 families attended.
Youth Services has had 1,393 registrations for Summer Reading from June 1-30!
- 118 participants have read 500-599 minutes
- 83 participants have read 1000+ minutes.
These numbers are important because they indicate support for summer reading, libraries, and literacy, as the summer reading program has occurred entirely during the library’s closure.
As a thank you, yard signs are being distributed to those who register.
