UCPL teams up with Operation Food Search for free lunches for kids this summer

     Beginning Tuesday, July 5, kids under the age of 18 will be able to get a free lunch at UCPL, thanks to a new partnership with Operation Food Search. Lunches will be available at our temporary location (6900 Delmar Blvd.) from noon to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, and we'll have some fun activities for kids while they eat their lunches under the tent behind the Library. Kids must be present to receive lunch, and the food must be consumed here at the Library. The program will continue through Wednesday, Aug. 17. For more information, call 314-727-3150.

Youth Summer Reading July programs include tabletop gaming, animal info, and film camps!

      UCPL's Youth Services department is roaring into July with lots of great programs and events for summer reading! On Thursday, July 21 we will host two evening programs. First, we are inviting our teens to take part in an hour-long tabletop RPG night. If you’ve ever been curious about tabletop role-playing games, a one-sheet game night is an awesome way to dip your toe into the waters of this half-storytelling/half-board game style. It’s an hour of off-the-cuff fun starting at 6:30 p.m.
     For all ages, we are endeavoring to answer the question: which animals call the city their home? Discover how and where many of our furry, feathered, and scaly city residents live. Join us in the courtyard of the former University United Methodist church at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 21 as the Missouri Conservation Department introduces us to all the wild wonder in our own backyards!
     If critical hits and critters aren’t your thing, how about making a movie? Cinema St. Louis will be at the Library this month to show you how to make movies using an iPad. Shoot and edit a movie on one device and easily share the completed project with friends and family. Campers, in small groups, will work through all phases of production to create a short film complete with music, credits, and more. A general movie-making class will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon July 25-29 for ages 8-12. For ages 13-18, come learn how to make a One-Minute Music Video Aug. 1-5, from 10 a.m. to noon each day. Spots are limited, so call Youth Services at 314-727-3150 to sign up today!

Renovation update: walls are starting to rise!

     Rainieri Construction is starting to frame out walls and create new spaces at 6701 Delmar! We hope to be able to move back into the building in March 2023. Below you'll find photos of the new home of our technology makerspace (top; previously home to HVAC machinery), the new One Button Studio (bottom left; the studio will be at the top of the stairs on the second floor), and the rough outline of our reconfigured first-floor bathrooms (bottom right).
