Old library to take on new life as Duvall Visitor and Centennial Center

  • Written by Valley View Staff


Cheree Harder, a board member for the Duvall Foundation for the Arts, and Scott Thomas, Duvall Chamber of Commerce president, paint the interior of the former Duvall Library in preparation for its new life as the Duvall Visitor and Centennial Center. Harder said local business owners and residents have talked about having a visitor center for awhile. “It will be so much nicer to have this space so both we and the public can utilize it. And it’s in a perfect place in the center of town.” Numerous volunteers have helped in the effort. The rhodies have been removed from the front of the building to bring more light in, said Thomas. Once the center has opened volunteers will be manning the desk to answer questions. The Chamber and DFA have leased the building from the city, which owns it, for the centennial year. New carpet has now been laid and the building will soon open.The Civic Club still uses the downstairs Rose Room for its meetings.
