On Aug. 25, Duvall residents lined up on the sidewalks for a ceremonial “book brigade” to move the final few books, one at a time, from the old library to the new one just a block away and across the street. Bill Ptacek, KCLS director, who spoke at the grand opening, surveyed the crowd and said, “I don’t think anyone else is at home – everybody’s here.”
The Duvall Library, which in the 1930s was operated and supplied by the Women’s Civic Club, is now part of the King County Library System which is the largest in America.
Paige Denison, president of the Duvall Library Board, told the crowd: “When you sit down on one of these comfy chairs with a child on your lap, you are home.”
