This October, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Daniel Boone Regional Library (DBRL). This anniversary marked the start of the regional contract between library districts in Mid-Missouri to provide library services to their residents. Currently, DBRL is made up of two tax-supported library districts: the Callaway County Library District and the Columbia and Boone County Library District (covering all of Boone County except Centralia, which has its own library district).
The regional system concept allows libraries to work together under a formal, legal contract as a single entity. When you hear or read “Daniel Boone Regional Library,” you know that we are operating on behalf of all of our members.
