4 Steps: Save the Lewis and Clark Library

Now is the time we need to exert maximum pressure on the St. Louis County Library's Board of Trustees.

We need an overwhelming show of support for preserving the library at the next board meeting on Monday, April 21 at 3:30pm at the Headquarters Branch of the library located at 1640 South Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63131 (map location: http://goo.gl/maps/BwwkS)

Modern STL is spearheading this preservation effort. Also on hand will be representatives of The North Saint Louis County community surrounding the library, the Society of Architectural Historians, the American Institute of Architects, Landmarks Association of Saint Louis and the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.

#3 - Send an email letter to St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley letting him know you the Library Board's implementation of their master plan is flawed.
