   The St. Louis County Library System will go ahead with plans to tear down two older library buildings and replace them with new structures despite recent opposition.  

   About 100 people attended the Board of Trustees meeting Monday, many pleading with board members to spare the buildings that house Lewis and Clark branch in Moline Acres and the Tesson Ferry library in Green Park.  Preservationists pleaded to save the modern architecture and stained-glass windows of the Frederick Dunn designed Lewis and Clark branch.  It's slated to be razed and replaced with a $6.2 million building with more space for computers and technology.  

   The Tesson Ferry branch on Lin-Ferry Drive will be replaced by a new $16 million structure on Musick Road, across from Grant's Farm.  

   Despite the opposition, Director Kristen Sorth tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the library is moving forward with its plans.
