The Ste. Genevieve County Commission agreed to pass an ordinance allowing the Ste. Genevieve County Library to erect additional signs around the library.

Shawn Long, the new library director, told the commissioners the library has inadequate signage at the Ste. Genevieve County Community Center, where it has been located since 2000, and on the roads leading to it. He reported that the library board has received complaints from people who had trouble finding the library.

Long said signs can be made locally, saving shipping charges.

Brad Arnold, community center executive director, suggested that one sign could go on the reverse side of the stop sign on the northeast corner of the facility.

Long said he had spoken to the Missouri Department of Transportation [MoDOT] about a sign on Highway 32. He was told a county ordinance would need to be passed. Nelson told him that would be “a piece of cake.”

Nelson suggested that a sign might be good at the Bloomsdale annex, as well.

Long also reported on library activities. More than 120 people attended the kickoff event for the summer reading program, featuring items from The Space Museum in Bonne Terre.
