Check out our genealogy databases!

Genealogists rejoice! We’re excited to announce that we recently added HeritageHub to our list of online resources. This database provides access to millions of newspaper obituaries dating back to 1704 and spanning all 50 states. HeritageHub joins HeritageQuest (a resource that provides access to U.S. and Canadian historical censuses, Freedman’s records, and U.S. Indian census rolls) as UCPL’s databases dedicated to genealogy. Access to HeritageHub and HeritageQuest is free with your UCPL card, and is available on the Genealogy Resources page of our website.

For more genealogical assistance, we’ve also added a link to FamilySearch, the world’s largest free online genealogical resource, with more than 2 billion historical records from around the world.

For more information, email our reference librarians at or give us a call at 314-727-3150.

Thanks to a grant from the Missouri State Library, we have a brand new Makerbot Replicator+ 3D printer available for use by the public! Print 3D files by dropping off a flash drive with a .makerbot file, or email your file to This service costs $1 for 30 minutes of print time. Estimates will be available when you submit your print job.

Created in conjunction with the other libraries of the Municipal Library Consortium, the MLC Libraries of St. Louis app allows you to manage your account, place holds, and search the Library catalog. You can have multiple cards stored and accessible at the same time (perfect for families!), and the app will even store your barcode, which you can use to check out items at UCPL. The app is available in the Apple and Google Play app stores. If you need assistance, call the Library at 314-727-3150 and we’ll happily help you out!
