New (Temporary) Procedures and Hours

 

Current Hours of Operation:

Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Curbside pickup is available during normal hours of operation.


We are pleased to have resumed offering access to the library building on June 22nd. Please be aware and considerate of the changes currently necessary to protect all library visitors and staff, and to comply with local, state, and national directives.

As per current executive order, everyone age 5 and over entering the building must wear a mask covering both nose and mouth if medically able to do so. If you have forgotten your mask, we would be happy to accommodate you by providing curbside assistance.

Also per executive order, if you are sick or have recently been sick, you should not enter the building. Call to speak with the librarian so we can try to accommodate your need.

There is a building capacity limit of 27 people including staff. If we reach that limit, staff will inform incoming patrons of the need to wait in their cars until people exit the building.

Please social distance while in the library. Seating, computer stations, and high interest collections have been spaced appropriately. Do not move seating around. Please do not approach a shelving unit that another patron is browsing until they have finished. Only one circulation station will be available for checking out materials. If a queue forms, please observe the markers on the floor to preserve social distancing.

Patrons are limited to one log-on to a library owned public access computer station per day. The log-on has a hard-cap of 1 hour. Due to spacing requirements, we only have 4-public access computers available at this time. They are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Our wi-fi is available 24 hours a day (extends to the parking lot); there is a cap of 1.5 hrs usage per day per device.

Please be aware that while we have increased our cleaning regimen, it is not feasible to clean the bathrooms or computers after each use. We have designated one of our two bathrooms as a hand-washing station (the other is currently designated unisex). We encourage you to observe best practices and wash your hands thoroughly upon entering the building, after using a computer station, and before exiting the building.

Please return all collection materials in the through-wall return slot located to the east of the entrance. All items are quarantined for a minimum of 96-hours before being checked in and shelved for circulation.

If you have questions about the procedures in place or need additional assistance, please call and speak with the library director or inquire at the circulation counter. Thank you for helping us serve you; please be patient. Procedures may change based on new guidance or to meet changing needs; updates will be posted as appropriate.

We are happy to continue offering curbside service indefinitely and encourage anyone who feels they are at risk to take advantage of this service.

 

T.A. Cutler Memorial Library

 
The City of St. Louis is proud to provide library services to the community.  Library service has been a tradition in St. Louis since 1873.  The city officials saw the importance of a library to the community and took over the responsibility of providing library services in 1938.
 
The T.A. Cutler Memorial Library has been serving the City of St. Louis and surrounding areas from its current location at 312 Michigan Avenue since 1997.  Our beautiful library boasts a lovely garden and gazebo replicating the well house at the famed “Magnetic Mineral Springs”. 
 

The library is home to a physical collection of books and media numbering approximately 30,000 items and has access to many other library collections throughout the state via interlibrary loan.  Through digital collections we provide access to an additional 100,000+ items.


We offer four public computers with high speed internet access and Microsoft Office productivity software for the convenience of our patrons. 


All in-person programming is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Library Hours are Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.and Saturday 10:00 a.m. -- 1:00 p.m.; curbside pickup is available during normal hours of operation. Closed Sunday.

Library Art

 
Local author and historian David McMacken arranged for the donation of three paintings to the library in 2008.  The wonderful paintings depict the area in and around the Magnetic Mineral Springs and the Park Hotel and are originals from the early 1900’s.  The paintings are now on display at the library and are a great addition to the St. Louis community.
 
 
 
 

Library Improvements

 
 
 
 
In January 2008 the library interior was renovated to accommodate growth of the collections and an increasing need for computer and study space.  The project was completed in February at a cost of approximately $70,000.  The money used to complete the project was raised mainly through the generous donations of library supporters. Additional improvements were made in 2009 using a $10,000 grant from the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation.
