For Seniors

Books to You
 

The Books to You program is sponsored by the Library Foundation and is committed to ensure that every citizen in St. Charles County is able to enjoy a true library experience, even if they are unable to come to us.  Books to You provides services by matching our senior community to one-on-one volunteer delivery and provides outreach collections to nursing homes, retirement centers, and senior citizen centers throughout the county. 

To receive homebound service or to volunteer to support Books to You, please call the Extension Services office at (636) 441-2300 x. 1517 or visit the Foundation website.  Referrals for customers and partners are always welcome.

Large Print collection
Each branch library has a collection of large print books that includes a variety of popular fiction and classics as well as non-fiction. Large print books are also available through interlibrary loan if a specific title is not available within the Library District.

Wolfner Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped
 Each library branch has applications for Wolfner Library services. Equipment and materials are mailed free of charge to anyone who qualifies for this service. Customers do not have to be blind to take advantage of talking books or braille materials from Wolfner. Anyone who cannot hold a book, whose eyes tear up, or has other disabilities, either permanently or temporarily, that prevent use of regular printed materials may qualify. For more information about free library services from Wolfner Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, visit the Wolfner Library website or call 1-800-392-2614.
