“We are so thrilled to be opening the beautiful new Lewis and Clark Branch. I said at the groundbreaking that this was the library the community built and this can be seen in every corner of the branch. I hope the patrons love it as much as we do.”
Serving an underserved community.
The Lewis & Clark branch is designed to meet the needs of an area suffering economically with chronic unemployment and schools sometimes unable to meet the needs of students. Designers looked for ways to serve this community beyond the expected stacks. They created abundant community spaces -- from a business center with fax and copy machines, to a large community meeting room with white board and projector, to three private study rooms, to dedicated children's and teen's areas. The library is a safe and accessible place for information, programs, collaboration, community and fun.
