About Us

The Daniel Boone Regional Library (DBRL) connects our communities to the world of information and ideas.

Established in 1959, the Daniel Boone Regional Library provides public library services to three library districts in Missouri:

  • Boone County Library District (outside the 1965 Columbia and Centralia city limits)
  • Callaway County Library District (all of Callaway County)
  • Columbia Library District (within the 1965 Columbia city limits)

View a map of all districts.

DBRL is funded primarily through property tax income. State aid, interest income, grants, bequests and donations, and copier/printer income make up the rest of the system’s revenue.
