Huntsville Town is fortunate to have the Weber County Library – Ogden Valley Branch, located in the downtown area of Huntsville:
The Ogden Valley Branch Library and David Eccles Community Center was dedicated and opened in October 1995. This 19,600 square foot building was built on land donated by Huntsville Town. The community center has a 150 seat auditorium, large community room with full kitchen facilities, two smaller public meeting rooms, and an outdoor garden with a presentation area. The library houses approximately 45,000 items and two public computer centers.
The facility also houses an art gallery with exhibit space for paintings and other works of art.
