Exhibits From the Library Archives

In 1959, several Mid-Missouri library districts came together to form the Daniel Boone Regional Library system. Today DBRL serves 223,303* people throughout Boone and Callaway Counties, and we want to include you in celebrations of our 60-year milestone. As part of our celebrations, we’re featuring displays at two of our libraries.

On display throughout October:
