FESTUS PUBLIC LIBRARY
North Mill Street
Festus, MO 63028
An application card must be filled out by an adult who must
show proof of identity and residency and provide references.
Cards will be issued to children when they have completed first
grade. Children under 14
years of age must have parent or guardian signatures.
When there are several cards issued to members of an individual
family, it is suggested that the total number of books checked out at one
time would not exceed 25. This
will make it possible to circulate books to other patrons if you take only
what you can read in a two-week period.
The library offers a Summer Reading Program to children of all ages (pre-school through young adult). Call the library at 636-937-2017 for information. Special programs will be listed on the Calendar of Events at www.jeffersoncountyonline.org.
