The current Lewis & Clark Branch opened to the public in 1963. The building is 16,000 square feet on two floors and has undergone several renovations over the years, but is no longer considered practical for a modern library. Space restrictions, the lack of study rooms, quiet spaces and seating throughout the branch, and the need for more computers are the most common issues cited by patrons at this location. The Facilities Master Plan recommends constructing a new 20,000 square foot building on the present site.
