Danville’s library has been open for more than 30 years and thrives while being entirely run on donations and volunteers. The Library opened in it's new home in Danville Station in January 2017. The Library includes books, periodicals, a media center, a children’s corner, and a genealogy resource area. Danville is very fortunate to have a rich heritage dating back to the 1800’s. Throughout the Library are wonderful pieces of Danville's past. Artifacts and photographs decorate the Library and are worth a visit of their own.
Danville Station is housed in the former Lumberyard, the building was purchased from the current owner but the land behind the Station was donated by Tom Gerdes in honor of Bob & Bernice Gerdes and Roy & Ruby Gerdes who owned the Lumberyard for many years. Old windows from the Lumberyard are used to decorate the Station, just one of the many ways which Danville history comes alive in the Station.
The Library offers so many free benefits to the community. In addition to the services above, there is a wonderful children's story hour that takes place the 4th Saturday of each month at 10:30am. Travel & educational presentation, reading & trivia contests, along with summer reading programs are just a few of the wonderful events the Library offers.
New library volunteers are always welcome, contact the Library to learn more.
