MAPS IN THE COLLECTION OF ST. LOUIS PUBLIC LIBRARY

The collection of St. Louis Public Library includes thousands of maps, atlases, and gazetteers.

Some items can be copied; others are so large / so fragile that copying is not possible. Some of these items can be checked out by SLPL cardholders; others must be used in the Library.

Need more information? Contact Joe Winkler, our maps expert!
