It is with sincere regret that we inform you that The Family Vision South County will be forced to cease its library lending services. We knew when we opened 18 months ago that it would be difficult to maintain two locations without greater financial support from the community. Our current landlord has dealt with us very generously, but he could not continue giving us the space at such a steeply discounted rate. This forced us to look at other lease possibilities, but our financial situation simply cannot sustain two locations at this time. As a result, the Board of Directors of The Family Vision has voted to close our South County location, located at 1387 Covington Manor Lane. Friday, September 15, 2017, will be our last day of operations.
The nature of a lending library requires us to have a few “deadline” dates so that we can smoothly end operations and prepare for packing and moving. The following dates will be important as you borrow and return books to The Family Vision: South County.
Friday, September 1: The Final Day that books can be borrowed or renewed from our South County location. The South County location will not renew or lend items after this date; however, you can still borrow, renew, and return items through our St. Peters location.
Friday, September 15: All books that have been borrowed can be returned to either our South County location or our St. Peters location up to this date. After this date, all renewals must be made through our St. Peters location. After this date, all returns must be made to the St. Peters location. Fees will be assessed on all late items as per our usual policy. As the St. Peters location will remain open, you can continue utilizing all of our services there if you wish.
Tuesday, September 5 through Friday, September 15: These two weeks will be used to organize, pack, and move. Most of our furnishings will be sold. If you know of ministries, businesses, schools, or churches that need furniture, please feel free to have them call us.
If you have any questions, please call Jamie Stull @ 314-939-1222 or John Thrower @ 636-447-6900.
