In 1922-23 the Long-Bell Lumber Company, under the leadership of Mr. Long, conceived and started building the "Planned City" of Longview. In 1953 the Library was extensively remodeled to make more use of the lower floor for library collections.
During the early years of the Lower Columbia Junior College many of the classes were held in the Library and it was the center of the college until the Main Building was built in 1950.
As the Library looks forward to the 21st century plans are being made to bring it up to date for handicap access and for earthquake, fire, and electrical safety and again to enlarge the building to accommodate the information explosion and to accommodate present and future technological growth.
