The Daniel Boone Regional Library strives to be at the heart of the community, a trusted resource and partner known for excellence, creativity and open, equitable access, connecting every person to opportunities for a lifetime of discovery, learning and joy.
Established in 1959, the Daniel Boone Regional Library provides public library services to two library districts in Missouri:
- Callaway County Library District (all of Callaway County)
- Columbia and Boone County Library District (all of Boone County outside the 1965 Centralia city limits)
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.
