The Kaysville Branch is both the newest and the oldest library in the system. Originally the Kaysville City Library, it was established in 1921 and operated independently of the county system for many years. In 2005, Kaysville City opted to join the county library system and in July of 2006, the Kaysville City Library officially became the newest branch of the Davis County Library system. After a remodel of the old library space the branch officially opened as a Davis County Library Branch on August 12, 2006.
Nine years later in August of 2015 the library moved into a new 15,000 square ft. building which includes dedicated children’s space, conference rooms, a quiet study room, attractive reading areas, including a fireplace, additional internet pc’s and room for 100,000 circulating items. Unique displays, quality art reproductions and an extended tangram wall provide an attractive backdrop for library service. The Elizabeth “Tibby” E and Roy W Simmons auditorium seats 180 and offers inviting and creatively designed space for the community to use and enjoy during educational and entertaining events.
The library is a beautiful blend of the old and the new with roof lines that mimic those of the old mills that once sat on the property as well as new modern touches including high ceilings and light filled spaces. This library building was built to serve library patrons of not just today but for many years to come.
