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.
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.
