“One day I undertook a tour through the country, and the diversity and beauties of nature I met with in this charming season, expelled every gloomy and vexatious thought.” - Daniel Boone Expel every gloomy and vexatious thought with a tour of the Columbia Public Library, headquarters of the Daniel Boone Regional Library, and the Southern Boone County Public Library, the newest DBRL branch, in Ashland, MO. In Columbia, see recent renovations and the children’s interactive early learning activity area. In Ashland, explore how local history and this small community’s needs shaped its interior design. Transportation is included.
