Between November 1965 and November 1966 construction of a new 10,000 square foot library for the Raleigh community at the current location on Powers Road was completed. The Raleigh Branch library has been a popular attraction to the residents of its community ever since.

In 1997, the Raleigh Branch of the Memphis/Public Library & Information Center checked out over 210,000 items, answering over 60,000 information questions, and serving over 225,000 library customers.
