ABOUT THE NEW DAVIES LIBRARY

The voters of Deer Trail approved a tax increase to accompany the successful request for a BEST grant to build a new school! In 2017, community meetings were held and contractor and architect firms were hired. Ground was broken May 2018 and construction began on school-owned property east of the old school. The new school, for preK–12 grades, incorporates state-of-the-art technology and community space.

The new, larger library features:

  • Open floor plan
  • Natural light
  • One meeting room
  • Two study rooms
  • Access to WiFi
