Jim Brown named as St. Charles City-County Library Director
After an extensive search process, the board names Sandstedt's Successor.

The search process for the new Director for the St. Charles City-County Library District has come to an end.  During the process, the Board of Trustees received invaluable input from staff, library partners as well as the public.  Through the process not only did the Board learn a great deal about the finalists, but they also learned about the challenges and opportunities that the future holds for the St. Charles City-County Library District.  Jim Brown will be leading the District as its new Director, as it faces those challenges and explores those opportunities.  Jim's education includes Masters Degrees in Library Science as well as Public Administration.  His experience includes 20 years managing the Spencer Road Library branch, one of the three regional branches in our District.  He has also devoted himself to community service in St. Charles County for many years, including his current work with United Way.  Jim will begin his new position in January.

2nd Annual Art Uncorked Event exceeds all expectations!
Emerging Library Advocates host another great event.

Nearly 200 people gathered at the Kathryn Linnemann library on Saturday, September 11th for an intimate evening of art, wine, food and fun in support of the St. Charles City-County Library Foundation.
This was the Foundation's second year hosting Art Uncorked: An Evening of Grape Expectations which raised more than $5,200 for special programs for young children and homebound senior citizens.  VIP guests joined Alyssa Wolfman for an early reception where she gave an excellent art history presentation titled "Art Unveiled".  Ten talented artists shared their works, Stone Hill Winery and Yellow Farmhouse Vineyards and Winery sampled a variety of wines that tantalized our taste buds and the Landolfi Quartet brought the library to life with their spectacular music arrangements. The evening culminated with  the highly anticipated "UNCORKED" raffle with Julie Knocke taking home the $1500 grand prize!  Other raffle winners included Joe Krebs who won $500 and Warlene Reed received the wine basket.
Thank you to our Champagne Sponsors for helping make this event such a huge success!! Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes Jewish St. Peters Hospital and Renaissance Plastic Surgery
