Old Library Building Info

Old Kaysville Library-1

Why am I here?

In 1941, in a Depression stricken Kaysville, 25-year-old Mayor Thornley K. Swan convinced citizens to construct a $55,000 City Hall and health center. The building was first opened to the public in 1944.

Since that time the building had been home to city government, the Davis County health department, the Selective Service, and the city library beginning in 1962. In 1986, the new Kaysville Municipal Center was built. The library expanded into the newly renovated building in 1987, along with the LeConte Stewart art gallery.

In 2006, Davis County took over the operation of the Kaysville library, and moved to its current location at 215 North Fairfield Road in 2014.

In 2017, the city council authorized the remodel of the building to add much needed office space. However, after work had begun, mold was discovered in the walls. Further inspection revealed additional work to make the building habitable. More discussion was necessary before continuing with the project.

The current city council will make a decision to remodel, expand, or rebuild the building, possibly to the east of its current location. They want to hear from you!
