As of Oct. 4 the library is open by appointment only as the room is painted. Please bear with us as the library undergoes some changes. Call the librarian at 314-655-1632 to make an appointment if you need a book at this time. While the staff will attempt to work you for your research needs, it may not be possible to conduct your research until the renovations are completed. Please contact the staff to make arrangements.

The park library is a research facility available to researchers studying American westward expansion and related subjects.

The library is open for research Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding federal holidays. It is located on the second floor of the historic Old Courthouse at Broadway and Market Streets in downtown St. Louis.

Researchers who are considering a visit to the library may read our library procedures to better acquaint themselves with the library's operational rules. Both park staff members and public researchers are encouraged to call the library in advance to schedule their library use, whenever possible.
