Description: In 1966 plans were made to build three Centennial branches at Malton, Lakeview and Lorne Park. Lorne Park, which was built in the Whiteoaks Park area on Truscott Drive, was renamed the Clarkson Lorne Park Branch, combining the Clarkson and Lorne Park branches. (Clarkson Branch was destroyed by fire in 1964, and another branch, at first known as Western and then renamed Park Royal, was opened in the Park Royal Plaza in November 1964.) In April 1974, an extension to the Clarkson Lorne Park centennial branch was opened by Mayor Martin Dobkin, and in 1998 the decision was made to change the name of the Clarkson Lorne Park branch back to Lorne Park and to rename the Park Royal branch Clarkson Branch.
