In those 100 years, the club served Louviers — a small community in western Douglas County, south of Titan Road just off Santa Fe Drive — in multiple capacities. Opening as a community center in 1917, the building has housed a mercantile, post office, reading room, shooting range and barbershop. The building’s storied history earned it a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, through which Louviers Village is also designated a Historic District.
Today, in addition to functioning as a library branch, the building offers event space and a two-lane bowling alley.
“Louviers is a community that treasures its history and its library, and DCL is excited to celebrate the building’s 100-year anniversary with them,” Jill Seeland, patron service technician with Douglas County Libraries, said in a written statement.
The Aug. 26 celebration will run from 10 a.m. to noon, featuring an old-fashioned ice cream social, games such as horseshoes and ring toss, crafts and more. The event also offers a first look at the newly updated library — a project incorporating refinished floors, restored historic furniture, new carpet and fresh paint.
The Louviers Village Club House is located at 7885 Louviers Blvd. For more information about the event, call 303-791-7323 or visit DCL.org.
