St. Louis Public Library celebrated the 100th anniversary of Central Library's opening with a ceremony and tour on Friday, Jan. 6.  The ceremony included the presentation of a Mayoral Proclamation by Josh Wiese, Special Assistant to Mayor Francis G. Slay.

The tour provided a fascinating update on the progress of the landmark's $70 million restoration and renewal project currently underway.  Guests on the tour caught a glimpse into what the revitalized Central Library will feature when it reopens to the public later this year.

Congratulations on 100 years!

Mayor Francis G. Slay
