The Natural Bridge Branch opened in its current location in May 1993. This building replaced the first Natural Bridge Branch, which was one mile east and served as Library Headquarters from 1951-60. In 2016, the branch underwent extensive renovations as part of the Your Library Renewed campaign. The renovated space includes a children's area featuring a mural of the St. Louis skyline and two community meeting rooms, the larger of which is sponsored by "House of Cards" creator Beau Willimon, a St. Louis native. The Emerson Technology lab offers computing and access to a business center with copying and fax machines. A pollinator garden was installed in 2017.
